Paprika! One of the greatest of spices.


This is an ode to one of my favourite spices: Paprika! Now you may think paprika is paprika, but you would be wrong. Read this piece and you will see why: The Different Kinds of Paprika and How to Use Them.

I keep at least 3-4 on hand and mix them around to give a little something extra to whatever I am cooking. I love smoked paprika in general, and sprinkle it on like pepper to whatever I want to have a bit of pepperiness and a bit of smokiness. It’s fantastic.

Now, if you aren’t used to cooking with paprika, I want you to start with this classic: Chicken Paprikash Recipe from Martha Stewart.

It’s a recipe that really shows you how great the spice is. But you don’t need a recipe: if you are seasoning a chop or any cut of meat with spices, sprinkle some paprika on top. I do this all the time making steak. You’ll be glad you did!

Wait, you say you want to learn more about paprika, including more recipes to try? Here you go.
