A Spicy Site
By toddfast on Jan 26, 2005
A colleague pointed me to a terrific site that can tell you just about everything you'd want to know about spices, be it chemical, linguistic, cultural, or culinary: Gernot Katzer's Spice Pages. For instance, the entry on pomegranates has a fascinating discussion of "biblical spices" described in the Old Testament. I could easily spend a couple of hours reading Gernot's site (what am I saying, I already did).
