When selecting your farm raised ingredients from your local grocer and farmers market, it's always best to balance the right ingredients through dry spices and fresh herbs that create superior dishes. 


Example when creating a spice rub for B.B.Q. ribs, purchase whole spices and grind as required for optimum quality. I prefer to stay away from over spicing to ensure your identifying the flavour of the main product, in this case the ribs. 

As in creating spicing for a curry chicken, set a good mild curry without overpowering the chicken, where your just tasting the curry. I like making a nice maple coconut cream sauce, where the sauce stand up alone to have the consistent balance. This way you get the best of everything from the main chicken, coconut curry sauce, a nice blend of summer roasted vegetables.
