More self-explanatory than most spices, Chinese Five Spice powder is a blend that’s used most heavily in the cooking of Taiwan. It’s a balanced combination of cinnamon, clove, fennel seed, star anise, and Sichuan peppercorns, for a flavorful blast of warm, sweet, spicy, and bitter all in one go. Based on the idea of the five elements, the mix was developed to help balance the body. Whether or not that is true, Spicewalla's Chinese Five Spice is guaranteed to add deliciousness to any dishes it touches.
Spicewalla is the latest venture from acclaimed restaurateur Meherwan Irani – a self-taught chef who has been nominated for five James Beard Awards. It is inspired by his childhood in India, when his family would make their own dhansak masala from fresh whole spices hand-picked from their own farmland, then roast and grind it themselves. Spicewalla's products, roasted and ground in-house to bring out the freshest flavors, come in tins designed to keep your spices fresh, just like in India. Tins are also refillable: buy your refills in compostable bags when you are running low.
