Middle East

Middle East
From cumin, coriander, turmeric, and mint to exotic blends like Ras el Hanout and Za'atar, Middle Eastern cooking uses an array of spices to infuse otherworldly flavors into cooking. Arab spice traders once controlled nearly all movement of spices between Asia (including the famous Spice Islands), India, Africa, and Europe, so almost every spice in existence has found a place in Middle Eastern cuisine. Try your hand at the region's best dishes, such as Chicken Shawarma or Manakeesh.
