Cardamom - spicy-sweet
An aromatic spice indigenous to south India and Sri Lanka, cardamom seeds come from a plant belonging to the ginger family. Cardamom has a wonderful aroma and an enticing warm, spicy-sweet flavour.
Chef Kirin recommends: Roasted lamb with cardamom, mint sauce and vegetable ragout
Chives – Mild and sweet
One of the world’s most popular herbs, chives are a member of the onion family. They have a mild, delicate flavor with less “bite” than their relatives.
Chef Kirin recommends: Roasted pork with curry sauce and rice pilaf with asparagus and chives
Mint – Refreshing and sweet
Mint is sweet-flavored, cool and refreshing to the palate.
In Greek mythology, Mintha was the daughter of a river god. She had an affair with Hades and was caught by his wife, who threw her to the ground and trampled her into pieces. From those pieces, the herb that bares her name sprouted.
