Strongly flavoured with star anise, but given depth by the other ingredients. The five spice mix is simple, with only five ingredients but tastes and smells wonderfully complex with fantastic sweet, sour and even subtle slightly bitter flavours.
uses: add a pinch to stir-fries, barbequed meats or noodle soups. Five spice makes a superb marinade for pork if mixed with honey and soy.
good with: duck, honey, chilli, pork, garlic, soy, fish.
we recommend: just a pinch per person
