Ras El Hanout Super

Ras el Hanout Super is a special version of this classic blend used in Moroccan cooking made for Herbie's anniversary. The name means top of the shop or the very best spice blend that a spice merchant (Souk) has to offer. 

When Herbie developed this new Ras el Hanout, he added rose petals, lavender, Sichuan pepper, grains of paradise, long and cubub pepper, lemon myrtle and mastic. Sadly, Herbie did still leave out the Spanish Fly and the Hashish, however the Herbie's Spices Super Ras el Hanout is an incredibly beautifully balanced example of this versatile Moroccan spice. 

To make a spiced cous cous, just add 1/2 a teaspoon of Ras el Hanout per cup, the spices will make it wonderfully fragrant and the Saffron will give a golden colour. Sprinkle onto chicken and fish before cooking. Use in tagines of chicken and lamb.
