Chilli-hot sauces like harissa and zhug, lemon-sharp piquant gremolata, soothing yogurt with chives, astringent brined limes and unctuous walnut-rich tarator. The choices available in Mediterranean condiments are startlingly different and flooded with powerful flavours. They make you stop and reconsider as you see intriguing opportunities, your mind as stimulated as your palate by the strong yet subtle tastes, the bright colours and the pleasingly complex textures.
