Miso is a Japanese fermented soybean paste used to give a salty flavour. There are different types of miso. Shiro miso, also known as white miso, is lighter and milder. Mugi miso is made from barley and soybeans and is also mild. Genmai miso is made from rice and soybeans. The darker the miso generally the stronger the flavour. Although high in sodium studies show that the sodium has a different effect on the cardiovascular system that table salt does. Miso also contains trace minerals suchs as zinc and manganese and antioxidants. Miso can be found in good grocery stores and health food shops.

Ral el Hanout is a north African spice blend and is strongly associated with Morocco. You will find it in any good quality spice merchants stores. I bought mine from The Silk Road in Calgary - http://www.silkroadspices.ca/
It adds an authentic flavour to tagines and can be used as a marinade or a rub.
