Eastern European Spices
Influenced by the region's natural resources, East European cuisine is made of mostly heavy, hearty comfort foods. From the Baltic to the Black Sea, you'll find an abundance of fish and seafood while the native juniper wood offers amazing fragrance to smoking hams and sausages. Warming flavors like mace, coriander, and juniper pair well with roasted meats and vegetables. Herbs like dill and marjoram add tang.
