Just discovered Grains of Paradise. I know there is one Brazilian dish that features this spice. Any others?

1) add to your version of French spice blend quatres epices or epices fines, for cooking MEAT or as complex SUBSTITUTE FOR CINNAMON in baking
2) add to French cake similar to gingerbread (called PAIN D'EPICES. Pierre Herme, among others, has a good recipe).
3) mix in small amounts with olive oil, cider vinegar, cumin, garlic, salt, pepper to make a good VINAIGRETTE
4) include in a PANANG CURRY PASTE, made from scratch. This is Malaysian cuisine, southeast Asia cuisine, influence both by China and India. very good on beef.

Glad the ideas look good.
and, P.S., if you search the hotline for this spice, you'll find another handful of threads with more suggested uses.
