Baharat

Each month, we highlight one of our spice blends in the hopes to better educate our clients and to inspire them to try new flavors. La Boite's founder, Lior Lev Sercarz, has formulated each blend to elevate your culinary experiences. Every blend is inspired by a person, a place, or a dish, with the flavors working together to tell a story.

Baharat

In Arabic, the word Baharat means simply "spices." It is the Middle East's version of India's garam masala, with recipes varying from region to region and family to family. Typically, spices are ground into a fine powder and used to season all kinds of dishes. 

Our version is made with allspice, clove, cinnamon and a mixture of other spices. It is warm and earthy, making it a wonderful addition to soups and stews, as well as grilled meats. This very aromatic blend has sweet and smoky notes, but is very well balanced and doesn't overpower when used in small amounts. 

Please enjoy 25% off of Baharat for the month of November with code baharat25!
