Reaching beyond what is generally referred to as “spicy,” the Piquant palette is an intriguing potpourri of tastes and colors that reflect current day trends to more adventurous selections of foods, seasonings, and condiments. These are the hotter colors of chili-pepper red, blood orange, saffron, cayenne, persimmon, and Tandoori spice, harmoniously mixed with turmeric, cumin, and Dijon mustard. For added impact and flavor, there is purple tinged basil and sage as well as unique new purple veggies and drinks. As a final touch, there is an ample splash of lemon and lime.
