“Taken from 'Soups and Starters' - Food Fact : Turmeric comes from the same family as ginger. When the root is dried, it has a dull yellow appearance and can be ground to a powder that can be used in a wide range of savoury dishes. It has a warm spicy flavour, and gives food a wonderful golden colour.”
