Chinese cinnamon, "Laurus Cassia" or "cinnamomum cassia" or "cinnamomum obtusifolium", also called Casse is produced by a tree of the same family, but it is less aromatic, less subtle and less elegant than Ceylon cinnamon.
Its smell is subtly perfumed, sweet with a peppery touch, it brings back memories by evoking family pastries.
You will use it in your meat dishes or stewed vegetables, with game, poultry, pork, duck, rabbit and with rice. It goes beautifully with turnips and carrots. It is essential on Moroccan pastilla and Portuguese pastel de nata.
