Inspiration for cooking with your Taste of TAFE spice rub

Kingaroy’s own celebrity chef, and TAFE Queensland Leading Vocational Teacher, Jason Ford, has curated the commemorative Taste of TAFE spice rub for Kingaroy BaconFest with Certificate II in Kitchen Operations (SIT20416) students.

While the spice rub is best partnered with pork, it can also be used with plant-based alternatives.

The students have designed the spice rub to specifically focus on savoury aromatics and Jason gives a hint of what flavours can be expected.

“Our spice rub contains seasoning elements such as salt, but for depth of savoury flavour, we’ve added cumin,” he explained.

“It's not spicy, but it's savoury and there’s a little bit of sweetness in there as well. Because the rub is likely to be used for cooking meat on the barbecue, we've included some smoky paprika as well.”

“But a vegan alternative would be to use the spice rub on your roast veggies. The way to enhance your plant based meal and make it absolutely delicious is by adding things like spices,” Jason concluded.
