The secret ingredient.
Like a cross between cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice, and anise. A major ingredient in chinese 5 spice powder, hoisin sauce and the infamous Vietnamese pho Bo soup. I just love sneaking a star or two in things with zero apology but you gotta be careful not to over use it. It can be quite overwhelming and remember its one of those spices like nutmeg and clove that just keeps developing as it sits in something. Often I put a whole star in a soup only to pull it out completely after it has developed enough so be careful grasshoppers. #mentor #kungfu #grasshopper #staranise #asian #spice #intense #phoBo #fivespice #hoisin
We are using this spice for a Guanciale dish with Brussels sprouts and roasted whole garlic cloves for the new @tiberiocustommeats Steak house menu.
