Kirstin: The original recipe for this had 3 teaspoons of Chinese five spice for two.
Tom: Well you’ve got it just right here. And I love the nuts!
Kirstin: This has less than 3 teaspoons of Chinese five spice. For six. I think Chinese five spice can be totally overpowering and ruin a dish. If I had put in the amount he suggested, it would have been unpalatable.
Tom: Do you think we’ll be making this again?
Kirstin: No. It’s not that special.
