most references give a list of spice / herbs, then suggest the dish for use.
silly, seems to me - I rarely dig out a spice jar and then go looking for something to cook with it.
more frequently I've got a dish in mind and looking for seasonings for that dish.

so I turned the list around - here's a alpha-list of dishes/foods with seasonings suggested.
