Among kitchen alchemists like Ferran Adrià, Wylie Dufresne (WD-50), and Corey Lee (The French Laundry and Benu), Le Sanctuaire's wildly inventive Jing Tio is muse, collaborator, and fellow magician. Tio's ingenious finds—exotic spices, esoteric cookbooks, and outrageous tools—have made him a connoisseur with a distinctly culinary cult following.

Get Into the Grind
Cooks in North Africa and India count their ability to blend spices as an essential culinary skill, as well as a signature to their dishes. Create your own signature with these four impeccable spice blends, chosen by Le Sanctuaire from See Smell Taste, a company devoted to the study and perfection of spice harvesting. The aromatic-and-curry-spice Vadouvan Golden Mix imbues something as simple as a shrimp and orange sauté with a surprising complexity of flavor. The fiery Harissa blend can elevate a vegetable couscous (or a grilled fish). Some say that the more than 20 spices in North African Ras el Hanout create an aphrodisiac, not to mention that it also enlivens lamb or a Moroccan chickpea side dish. Shichimi Togarashi translates as "seven flavors chili," which, along with lemon, orange peel, myrtle, and other spices gives a spicy glazed Japanese eggplant a warm, nutty touch.
