Ras-el-hanout is a classic spice mixture used in Moroccan cuisine. The name means 'top of the shop', which reflects its expensive ingredients. Good mixtures will contain more than 20 different spices, including dried peppers, cardamom, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, fennel, rose buds and lavender, but ras-el-hanout can contain up to 100 spices.
