Ras el hanout translates to ‘head of the shop’ in Arabic. Its complex flavour and aroma comes from many spices and herbs required to put the mix together and the basic ones are cardamom, clove, cinnamon, cumin, paprika, mace, nutmeg, peppercorn, turmeric. Each spice store will have their own secret formula. Ras el hanout is excellent in marinating meat or add to cooking couscous in Moroccan dishes. They are easily found in middle eastern grocers and some supermarkets!
