While Andrew Zimmern admits he’s not a fan of the pumpkin spice flavoring — which you can actually make yourself with this homemade pumpkin spice recipe — he mentioned that he still enjoys the classic seasonal spices. “I do like the fall sweet spices that we traditionally use in baking,” the restaurateur told Mashed. Zimmern shared that he prefers to reach for clove, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom, especially when making a classic pumpkin or sweet potato pie for the colder holidays.
There is also one other warm spice that he finds himself using all year round: “It’s weird. I’m a 12-month-a-year curry person,” he said. He revealed that cold curry chicken salad is a frequent lunch or dinner in the Zimmern household, with general staple curry dishes being on the menu at least once a week when the weather turns cooler. (Oh, what we would do to have a seat at that table — even if it’s one sans pumpkin spice lattes!)
