I am a voluntary editor for the Cook's Wiki, Cookipedia, which has thousands and thousands of pages of tested recipes, specialist ingredients, suppliers and cooking methods. This blog is intended to be a culinary diary and will have reviews of ingredients, kitchen equipment and cookery books. Links to recipes on Cookipedia will also be provided. It is a very personal blog and it is hoped that it will compliment Cookipedia.

The recipe for Roz merga hamra (below) calls for a small quantity of baharat.  This is a spice mixture used in North Africa and the Middle East.  The recipe calls for x number of parts of this spice and x number of parts of that spice.  Unless you are going to use tons of the stuff, assume half or even a quarter of a teaspoon for one part.  Do not do what I did and use a whole tablespoon for one part.  I now have rather a lot of baharat and hope I can use it up!
