"To me, life without veal stock, pork fat, sausage, organ meat, demi-glace, or even stinky cheese is a life not worth living." -Anthony Bourdain
Five spice powder can be a bit tricky. Too little and the flavor doesn't come through; too much and the dish will take on a bitter, astringent flavor. Because every spice blend is different, it's a good idea to start low and go slow. For this recipe, you might consider starting with just 1/4 teaspoon and then add more to taste. You might also wait until after the dish has chilled to add more because the cold will dampen the taste slightly.
For all Dr. Gourmet recipes we generally use national brands of spices - we want to use what will be available to you - so 1/2 teaspoon should be a good target.
