ReMARKable Palate #245: The Mystique of Mastic
This week, I catch up with my old friend Aliza Green, author of many cookbooks and culinary reference books such as the Field Guides to Meat, Seafood, Herbs & Spices, Starting with Ingredients, and many more. Today she’s here to talk about mastic, an unusual ingredient to North Americans, but with a storied history and exotic allure, which finds its way into special dishes in many Mediterranean cultures.
