I take things at face value. I'm simple like that. So when my mates invited me to go with them to explore the Spice Route, I was initially not that keen. My first hand experience and interest in spices wasn't that vast. I usually just throw whatever sounds good into my meals. A bit of paprika here. Perhaps some thyme or coriander there. I've watched a fair amount of episodes on the food channel so my cooking usually comes out just fine.
