Online noodle class on Spicy noodles: noodle making, cooking, plating
Although not all spices are ‘spicy’, when people hear the expression ‘spicy food ‘ the first thing most of them imagine is a burning hot sensation derived from certain spicy-tasting seasoning agents.
Spices and spiciness have been a part of most cuisines since ancient times, with many of them developing their unique flavoring traditions based on particular plants indigenous to specific regions.
On the other hand, it can also be said that international trade in spices among different cultures and peoples, was the first step to commercial globalization in human history.
Spices play many roles from simple food flavoring and coloring, to having medicinal properties and even religious significance.
There are several varieties of spices giving the hot sensation most usually associated with “spiciness”, of which the most common ones are black pepper and chili.
Despite great variations with regards to the preferred level of spiciness both among different culinary traditions and individuals, it can be argued that most people in most cultures are not entirely aversive to at least some degree of spiciness – and food businesses worldwide usually try to capitalize on this aspect of human nature.
The following can be pointed out among practical applications and roles of spiciness in food:
1. spiciness can improve / enhance the taste of food making it more appealing to consumers
2. spiciness can stimulate appetite, and accordingly consumers’ willingness to buy the product
3. spiciness offers great opportunities for diversifying and enriching menu selection
4. spices can serve as natural preservatives extending food’s shelf-life
With regards to noodle cuisine there are several possible routes we can follow to achieve spicy sensation for our noodle dishes:
1. adding a spicy component to the noodle dough thus turning noodles themselves into a spicy food
2. adding spiciness through other parts of the dish (by spicy seasoning of soups, sauces, dressings)
3. spicy seasoning of garnishes / toppings / side dishes that are added to or served along the main noodle dish
4. spices applied directly to the whole dish
