The colours of flavour !!

By Chinga
The colours of flavour !! Spices, aroma, taste and beauty... (Travelogue shots)
A spice can be a seed, fruit, root, bark, or other plant substance primarily used for flavouring, colouring, spicing or preserving food. It's a must! In 1498 the Portuguese explorer "Vasco-da-Gama" reached the Indian shores bringing with him a special pungent and rather hot spice. Chilli was brought to Asia by Portuguese !! We still cook with it all the time ... Back home in Portugal we call it: "Piri Piri"... Thank you for all your votes for the Wall art yesterday... Isabel GrinGrin

A few hours earlier I uploaded to a Greek Photo-site a photo with colorful spices, but in transparent bags, and at the same time I was remembering the fantastic spectacle I saw in the spice market of Baghdad, in 1980. Something unforgettable! And now I look at your fantastic set all these I had in my mind earlier. A top colorful collection, Isabel! I like all your photos!

It is your first version that I find most beautiful! All are colorful and bring back al sorts of thoughts re: cooking and visual joy!

and--we learned while visiting Portugal---Portugal has given the world so much--including Chili! Olive oil, wine, and Harry Potter!
