A pinch here, a teaspoon there ... spices have the power to single-handedly yet simply transform your everyday cooking and baking. Sisters Maria and Eva Konecsny, founders of the beloved Australian Gewürzhaus spice stores, take you into their homes to share the spice blends, seasonal rituals, celebrations, traditions and recipes from their German heritage that bring their families around the table. Maria and Eva will teach you how to use spices every day to elevate your cooking. Learn key principles for spicing different types of food, how to blend spices to make versatile mixes and bring incredible flavour to meals through the addition of just the right spice. You'll find comfort in more than 80 recipes from Maria and Eva's heritage, whether it's salted orange marmalade, saffron minestrone, chicken schnitzel with lavender crumb or spiked brown cherry cake. While treasured seasonal rituals include eye dyeing at Easter, Mothers' Day mushroom foraging, and the bunte teller, a plate of colourful cookies to share at Christmas time. Kindred will inspire you to come together around the table with your loved ones, discover the food paths of your own kin, and transform your cooking and baking with rhythms that sustain you into the future.
