Says Gill Schneider, CEO of Pereg, “Spices can transform a meal by adding a range of flavors, from a hint of sweetness to a kick of heat. They also give off beautiful aromas that often determine whether we want to eat a meal or not. We always think of salt as our go-to when a meal tastes too bland, but there are other spices, like cumin, that bring out the natural flavors of food. Use spices to also add color to a meal. Try our new, Everything But the Bagel spice on poultry, meats, rice, and just about everything. Spices such as turmeric and our new Spanish paprika adds vivid color to foods making them bright and appealing.”
