Épices de Cru Creole Spices


In a nutshell: Give your dishes some traditional Creole flavour in all sorts of marinades and grills.

A perfect blend for giving a traditional Creole twist to your dishes. In the French Caribbean islands, such as Guadeloupe and Martinique, they always cook chicken, meat or fish after marinating them in Creole spice blends first. Simply grind the Creole spices first then add to chopped herbs like parsley and coriander, spring onions, garlic, olive oil, fresh ginger, lime juice and a dash of rum. Try this marinade with BBQ pork chops.

Details 40g; Ingredients: Turmeric, nutmeg, allspice, coriander, black pepper, cassia, thyme, habanero chile, bay leaf, mace, cloves.

About Épices de Cru
Épices de Cru began in 1982 as a catering partnership between Philippe and Ethné de Vienne. Their mission was a kind of “cooking pot anthropology:” learning the secrets of family cooking around the world and applying these techniques to the needs of hungry Montrealers. The secret, they learned, was spices. Over the last two decades, Philippe and Ethné have searched for the world’s best spices, accompanied by their children, Marika and Arik. The de Viennes believe in direct sourcing spices: visiting growing regions, spending time with growers, and developing personal relationships that last decades. In 2004, they officially opened their first spice shop in Montreal’s fantastic Jean Talon market– it’s since become a mecca for foodies from all over the world. I first visited in 2008 and have been buying and using their spices on a regular basis ever since that first exciting visit. They steadfastly maintain that they do nothing original, only facilitating the exchange of culinary common sense from one place to another. But, what they do is simply quite brilliant - by providing us with the finest quality ingredients, and their superb spice mixes, we can all experiment with unusual spices and recreate delicious recipes from around the world.
