Cole & Mason Chinese 7 Spice
Eat our Chinese 7 Spice with a meat that can take lots of flavour. Use as a dry rub on greasier meats like duck and pork, that can really stand up to 7 spice's sweet, tangy taste. Serve your meat with egg-fried rice, seasoned noodles or lightly dressed greens.
Why not try making it meat-free. Run even half a teaspoon through stir-fried vegetables and change the whole feel of a dish. Or stir a pinch into a vegetable soup, like carrot and coriander or butternut squash. 7 spice's heady flavour complements meat, but really adds a complex dimension to plant-based dishes as well.
Chinese 7 spice's origin has been lost to history. No-one knows exactly what 7 spices went into the original, so there's no master blend. Which means people are free to invent their own combinations.
Our blend is a relatively traditional mix. We grind and combine: coriander, cinnamon, fennel, ginger, cloves, dill and star anise.
