Shaking Up Your Cuisine Using Bulk Herbs and Spices

Posted by World of Spice 14/05/2021

Crushed chillies are one of the most popular bulk herbs and spices in the catering industry

With the hospitality sector slowly reopening, we’re looking forward to seeing the catering industry go back to cooking up a storm! At a time of such uncertainty, restaurants need to be sure that they’re going above and beyond with their food and drinks menus, setting themselves apart to gain returning customers. Bulk herbs and spices are a great way to give your menu that authentic taste, bringing something new and exciting for your customers to try after a rather bland year!

Authentic Flavours

In your restaurant or kitchen, bulk herbs and spices are an absolute must. Within the industry, there are so many restaurants that offer a very similar cuisine. It’s the little details that can sometimes make the most difference. For instance, if you were to plate up 3 different chicken tikka masalas, they would probably look pretty similar, yet potentially, taste completely different. That’s completely down to the quality of spices used.

With over 40 different cuisines in the world, making your dishes taste authentic to its origin is what can set your dishes apart. People come to eat Asian food for the zesty freshness and sweet and sour spices, Mexican for its richness and earthy spices: consider the qualities and specifics you want from your dishes and recreate them through herbs, spices and seasonings.

Making Food Taste Better

Keep in mind that, the main reason people return to a restaurant is because of the quality of food. A truly good meal warms the heart, brings people together and ultimately, invites people back to an establishment. Great service and a friendly atmosphere certainly helps too, but once you have that reputation of unbeatable food and authentic cuisine, it’ll only play to your advantage in the future.

Not only is it a lot more cost effective, but it guarantees your herbs, spices and seasonings are delivered on time.
