Spices weaved their way into my kitchen and somehow my collection
seems to flourish regardless of the homes and locations I’ve lived
in. From the author and chef of Cooking for my father in My Cape
Malay Kitchen, comes a cookbook that chronicles her adulation and
reverence for spices. Cariema Isaacs’s affinity for spices emanates
from her Cape Malay heritage and her time spent cooking and baking
in her grandmother’s kitchen in Bo-Kaap, the Cape Malay Quarter in
Cape Town. Thus, at a very early age she understood the tastes
derived from cumin and coriander, the pungency of fennel, cloves
and star anise, and the piquancy of chilli powder, cayenne pepper
and masala blends. Spice Odyssey showcases a multitude of
beautifully written recipes with some familiar spices from her Cape
Malay heritage and fresh aromatics from her travels to India,
Turkey, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and the Middle East. ‘From east to
west, north to south, the routes and journeys travelled from shore
to shore by slaves and explorers, travellers and traders, the story
of spices emerged and the spice odyssey began.’
