A spice is a dried seed, fruit, root, bark or a vegetative substance. It may be used to flavour a dish or to hide other flavours. In the kitchen, spices are distinguished from herbs, which are leafy,
green plant parts used for flavouring or as garnish.
Spices also are used for other purposes, such as medicine, religious rituals, cosmetics, perfumery, or for eating as vegetables. For example, turmeric is also used as a preservative; liquorice as a medicine; garlic as a vegetable.
Adding spices requires lots of training. You need to try the spices carefully and more slowly – with practice everyone will find their own style. In beginning is good to try out 1 to 5 spices. With experience, you can increase the amount of spices.
