Spices From Around The World

Spices can appeal to the eye as much as the taste.

Dubai has a market dedicated to spices. Located in Deira by the creek large sacks overflow with many varieties.

These deep red chiles in India were found in the narrow lanes of Old Delhi.

Like India, Mexico is also a land where chiles are a common spice in cuisine.

Included in these sacks is golden turmeric, photographed in Marrakesh’s souk.

The colours of spices in markets round the world are always favourite sights in any city I visit. Lovely photos!

Cuckoo said...

Oh yeah, spices. :-)

And maybe that's why we love Mexican food.

Nice pictures Wendy. I didn't know they have turmeric in Morocco too!

Itinerant Londoner,
I also love visiting the markets of cities.

Cuckoo, what's for dinner? :^)

Priyank, I love the color of the spices in Morocco.

Love the color and richness of these photos! I love eating them too - I think I've become a bit of a spice addict after Asia.

Catherine said...

the photos look wonderful on this posting Wendy

Wendy said...

Matt and Hobo --looks like you prefer looking at red chiles rather than eating them.

Audrey and Catherine, thanks for your kind words.

I love these photos! And I love spices to eat and to look at. This post reminds me of the walls of my house, which are all spice themed. My living room is chile, hallway is nutmeg, dining room is tumeric.

Wendy said...

Pat, I'm with you on the tumeric.

Fly Girl, I love the colors you chose. I've got saffron in my living room...
