In this spring collection, you won’t find time-consuming recipes or long ingredient lists, but you’ll still get complex flavors and delicious results. The key to coaxing sublime flavor from few ingredients is to start with the freshest and best-quality ingredients you can find, then season them assertively. Freshly ground spices and toasted seeds make lively spice rubs, while citrus, fresh herbs, and olives add an extra level of brightness. These big flavors require little effort and take no time to master.
