Okay, I'm a bit behind in my response, but I just joined this forum & am still discovering all these different areas.

I've been using garlic & cinnamon in a chili dish my husband introduced me to called Plymouth Chili. It has those 2 ingredients plus oregano, chili powder, red kidney beans, tomato paste, ground turkey served over penne pasta & shredded cheddar. I serve it with some corn bread. One of my family favs!

I use a little cinnamon in my roasted red pepper sauce that goes on my cheese stuffed shells.
In alot of your indian and morrocan dishes they use cinnamon along with garlic and numerous other spices and herbs.

My understanding is that Cincinnati chili is Greek in origins. I guess that's because where I used to live in Virginia it was called "Greek spaghetti". I make it once or twice a year. A lot of people who grew up with cinnamon being strictly on sweets cannot appreciate it in savory dishes. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, so love it in southern European/north African/Middle east, etc cuisines.

Garlic & Cinnamon

Used alot in Asian and Indian cuisines. You can make a chutney out of it, especially with rice.

a seasoning I made recently called for the cinnamon to be toasted - what a wonderful flavor this gives. There were three spices called for to be toasted - I'll have to go look what the other two were, but it was great.

Cumin is a spice used in a lot of Mexican dishes - it can come in seeds or it can be ground. View some good information here.

Coriander is the seed from a cilantro plant. To me it has a slight lime flavor. View some good information here.
