Chinese five spice blends are based on the ancient philosophy of representing both yin and yang in food, incorporating all five elements of Chinese cooking: bitter, sweet, pungent, salty and sour into a single spice mix. It’s worth investing in a good variety of Chinese five spice, which uses a well-balanced mixture of quality spices. This huge resealable tub of Chinese five spice contains star anise, cinnamon, cloves, liquorice root and fennel.

Use Chinese five spice as a meat rub or a marinade for rich meats such as duck, beef and pork which can carry the big flavours. Also use a pinch of the five spice blend to season stews and vegetable dishes. With cinnamon and orange flavours, the spice is a particularly good ingredient for sweet cooking, with the flavours lending themselves well to chocolate tortes, almond biscuits and nut brittle.

Ingredients: star anise, cinnamon, cloves, liquorice root, fennel
