❖ Chinese Five-Spice is an extraordinary and robust, sweet and spicy mélange of powerfully scented spices that brings hot, crispy, numbing & deliciously savory flavor to dishes. Traditionally used all across Asia and Hawaii, it is named not after the number of ingredients in it, but after the five flavors profile. It's meant to be a seasoning that touches on what the Chinese consider the five principal tastes which has a long and rich history in Chinese food culture. The five flavors are sweet, sour, salty, bitter and piquant (or spicy). The combination of these flavors is thought to create balance: Chinese Five-Spice engages the whole palate with all five flavors in perfect measure.
At the heart of Chinese-Five Spice is Szechuan pepper (花椒 - Huā Jiāo), an ancient spice that has been cultivated in China for thousands of years that is responsible for the unique tongue-tingling sensation.
❖ Using at Home
You can use Five-Spice blend in many different ways including adding it to stew meat or poultry, making it part of a marinade and meat sauces, as a spice rub (with a bit of sea salt) when roasting foods, and as a seasoning in the breading for fried foods. Try it in baking, for spice cakes, muffins or cookies.
