Especially in the Southern Asian region, where dishes claim global recognition for their unique flavourful and aromatic characters, which are served with a punch of spice.
When one thinks of spice, it is natural to gaze upon the crown jewel of the Indian ocean, a plot of tropical land rich in its harvest of countless varieties of spices and scrumptious cultural dishes. Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon “Taprobane”, holds a rich history of being the prime hub for natural and quality spices, which famously attracted explorers from every corner of the globe.
Ceylon reached its epitome in the spice industry back in the 15th century, the dawn of exploration era, when European voyagers explored the Eastern waters in search of wealth. It is also known that spices held a competitive value in the 1500s, increasing the overall value of this special island-nation which naturally produced superior spices.
Sri Lanka has been quite famous for producing some of the finest spices the world has tasted, and continues to produce aromatic and healthy spices such as, cinnamon, cloves, pepper, nutmeg, cardamom, chilli and turmeric.
“The shores of the island are full of cinnamon and it is the best in all the Orient. When one is downwind from the island one can still smell the cinnamon eight leagues out to sea”
– reported by a Dutch captain (Braudel 1984, page 215)
Lankan spices hold such unique flavourful and aromatic characteristics due to inherent factors, which have rippled down generation to generation. These factors do not hold any extra-ordinary harvesting techniques, but rather due to natural factors of Sri Lanka. The island being blessed with micro-climatic zones amounts to being a prime factor that gives each spice a natural essence, one that can never be replicated by spices produced through various chemical enhancement compounds or from other sources.
