My reply: The ubiquitous asafetida, sometimes spelled asafoetida, finds itself in a great number of my recipes. What on earth is it? Read on…
It’s phenomenal just how many letters I receive about asafetida! It is definitely the most asked question I encounter.

Have you seen him in his tight-fitting yellow leotards, a large “A” emblazoned on his chest, tirelessly stocking grocery shelves around the world with little tubs of this pungent delicacy like a spice-wielding Santa?
