as mentioned above.... be very careful about customs. And...as for the spices you named you can find them all here.Hi all,
long time no see.
I'm looking for some advice on what to buy at the Istanbul spice market. I'm certainly thinking some red pepper, mint, oregano and other herbs, maybe cumin....what else? What can you actually buy there?
I would look more for cooking equipment.. things you just cant find here.
for example.... tangina pots. Tangina mind you... not tangine. I find them very interesting.
and to answer your question .... i would hunt for grains of paradise.
