‘as fragrant as it is fascinating’ – Tom Parker-Bowles, Daily Mail’s Best Books for Cooks 2022

Interwoven with divine recipes and stories, Eleanor Ford’s latest cookbook The Nutmeg Trail is a fascinating culinary exploration of spice, showcasing how centuries of spice trading and cultural diffusion changed the world’s cuisine. This cookbook is perfect for fans of Yotam Ottolenghi, Fuchsia Dunlop, John Keay and Romy Gill.

Eleanor Ford is known for her award-winning cookbooks Samarkand and Fire Islands. Now, in her latest cookbook, Eleanor presents a unique and enlightening guide to cooking with spice as she follows the trails of ancient maritime trade through Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Vietnam, Thailand, China, Sri Lanka, India, Iran, and the Emirates.

The Nutmeg Trail is an enhanced look at the flavour profiles that we use in cooking to add that something to a dish. Eleanor examines how spices can be used, combined and layered―how some bring sweetness, others fragrance, heat, pungency, sourness or earthiness to create something one-of-a-kind. Chapters and recipes are divided by spice―by the fire and thunder of ginger and peppercorns, floral petals & bark, chillies, lime & lemongrass, earthy cumin & coriander, plus complex spice blends.
