Paprika

Many chefs have a signature spice mix, a blend that is a kind of trademark. Paul Prudhomme had his spice mixture (now on grocery shelves across the country) and at the Four Seasons, Seppi Renggli’s featured many aromatics like mace and star anise, nice complements to fish.

This is a mixture I’ve come up with. You’ll note that the main ingredient is cayenne, giving dishes an added jolt of heat, and reflecting what I like to do at Town Hall. But don’t feel bound by this mixture — play with the proportions.

Consider this Town Hall Spice Mixture a starting point for your own.

Spice Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Spice Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
