Baharat is a sort of all-purpose spice mix used widely around the Middle East and Turkey. The Arabic word literally means ‘spices’ – and the spice recipe varies from region to region and family to family. Many spice shops will sell their own house-blend. This is a fairly typical Turkish-style blend with just a touch of heat. It’s infinitely versatile and I like to use it in braises and slow-cooked stews. Mixed with oil and crushed garlic it makes a terrific marinade for lamb chops and roasts and for barbecued game or poultry.

1/4 cup ground cumin
