  • What is my Italian spice blend?

    This Italian spice blend is a blend of 5 herbs and spices that together transform your most classic dishes into tasty recipes with the flavours of Italy.

    It is composed of :

    • Piment niora: a small Spanish chilli pepper with a round shape. Like the Espelette chilli pepper, it is very fragrant and has a moderate spiciness.
    • Basil and garlic: two herbs that, combined in the same dish, bring us immediately to Italy. They bring freshness, taste and refinement to your dishes.
    • Onion and parsley: two herbs that bring a little spiciness, freshness and taste without denaturing the food.

    In addition to being used as a spice for spaghetti, this Italian spice blend can also be used in French cuisine, especially in Mediterranean and Provençal recipes.

    David Vanilla's choice: Traditionally, an Italian blend is composed of 5 herbs. I chose to add a little niora pepper to bring a slightly smoky flavour and a very light note of spiciness that will please even the most sensitive palates.

    The harvest of aromatic plants

    The aromatic plants in my Italian spice have evergreen foliage. They can therefore be harvested according to your blends or needs. An early morning harvest is preferable to preserve all their flavours.

    Good to know: It is advisable not only to cut the leaves of aromatic plants, but also their branches.

    The differences between garlic and onion

    Garlic and onion are two of the ingredients in my Italian spice blend. Although they are cousins, they differ in shape: garlic is composed of a head and cloves, onion of a round fruit.

    Onion is used as a vegetable and as a condiment.

    The origins of Italian spice blends

    Italians have been fond of aromatic herbs since the Republican era. At that time, they made a sauce, garum, very similar to the Asian nuoc mam.

    It is important to know that Italian cuisine as we know it today is inspired by many foreign culinary traditions: Arabic, Slavic, Austrian, Amerindian, Berber...).

    Italy itself has a variety of culinary influences within its own territory. Also, the blends of Italian spices and herbs vary from region to region and even from family to family.

    Other uses for the herbs in this blend

    Aromatic plants and chilli pepper all have benefits for our health:

    • Garlic: it is an antibacterial agent that also has antiviral properties. It is a source of antioxidants. It is also known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-cholesterol properties. It is also consumed to limit cardiovascular disease and regulate hypertension.
    • Onion: this superfood improves blood circulation and has diuretic effects, which makes it an excellent slimming ally.
    • Basil: this aromatic plant is an antispasmodic used for centuries. It prevents nausea and vomiting. Good for digestion, it is also anti-inflammatory.
    • Parsley: rich in vitamins and minerals, parsley stimulates digestion. It is believed to have medicinal properties that can protect the liver and intestines, especially in the case of cancer. It also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
    • Chilli pepper niora: like all chilli peppers, the niora pepper in our Italian spice blend helps to burn fat. It also acts on digestion, infections and inflammations.

    How do I use my Italian spice blend in cooking?

    If our Italian spice blend is a valuable ally in the preparation of refined meals, it will delight the taste buds of young and old alike in everyday cooking. So don't hesitate to sprinkle half a teaspoon of it, just before serving, on your pasta dishes, risottos, homemade pizzas, as well as in a ratatouille or any meat or vegetable dish based on tomatoes.

    It also knows how to shine on a salad or potato dishes.

    This blend has the particularity of delivering warm and slightly spicy flavours. It can be used on raw food or at the end of cooking to preserve the aromas of the herbs it contains.

    This blend of herbs also goes wonderfully well with herbs from Provence or my spice blend for pizza. It is ideal to concoct a 100% Italian menu for your guests.

    Sprinkle it on your tomato bruschettas or fried squid à la romana to give them taste and character. They also sublimate your antipasti. Try making elvers à la Pisana the way Chef Alain Ducasse does.

    My Italian spice blend is also excellent with meats. You'll tell me more after tasting a bresaola carpaccio or a truffle braciola.

    Added to your fish, it flavors sea bream, sole... Finally, it brings a Mediterranean note to your vegetables and pasta.
