About Culinary Slut

We are not professional chefs, nor are we professional food reviewers. We are, however, food obsessed. Food is more than fuel; it is tradition, history, family, celebration. It brings us together, it reflects the world we live in and where we came from. In many ways, food defines communities and our cultures. It can be creative, joyful and comforting. Food is life.   

We come from humble backgrounds and that allows us to appreciate humble noshing; at the same time
, we have achieved some small measure of success that allows us to travel and gives us access to culinary artistry. We both come from cultures where food is central to community and family and is symbolic of friendship.

You will not find negative reviews on Culinary Slut. While we may poke fun at times, it is as much at ourselves for risking food that we know is not haute cuisine as it is at the food itself.  If we don't like something, we just don't post about it. Instead, we’re here to have fun and share our wonderful experiences with you.

Lemon Pepper Spice Mix

Updated: Mar 25

We do our best to use everything in our kitchen and reduce food waste as much as possible. The next time you've finished juicing a lemon, consider reserving the rind. Gently scrape off the pith (the white flesh under the peel) and leave the lemon skin to dry. You can then use the dried peels for this delicious spice mix (or in a variety of teas). Enjoy!

Ways To Use This Spice Mix This spice rub is particularly good with chicken and lamb, but can also be used on pork and beef. It's also lovely on rice as a side dish to simple fish entrées. We love this Crispy Rhubarb Lemon Chicken Bake recipe which involves tossing the crisped rhubarb in Lemon Pepper Spice Mix. We're also excited to try a Lemon Pepper Pork Stir Fry. Lemon Pepper is also a classic flavour for chicken wings, and can make a tasty addition to lamb! It's also a tasty addition to homemade burger patties and pasta. Even a little bit on grilled steak can add a new dimension to your red meat feast.


Side dishes: This pairs really well with a spinach, berry and goat cheese salad.
