Spiceology PIZZA Cheese Blend $ 15.95 The kids loved it sprinkled on popcorn – great pizza flavor! Will definitely be adding a sprinkle to quesadillas-mad & cheese and anywhere ele that good tomatoey-basil-cheesy flavor can go.
Domain Haute Moliere Fleurie Beaujolais ’13 $ 17.95 Light smooth red from the Beaujolais region – 100% Gamay! Crisp, bright cherry fruit with earthiness and a slightly smoky finish. Delicate body but full of flavor. Perfect picnic wine- keep summer as long as you can and think SALAMI, CHEESE and chicken salad sandos : )
Jacobsen Black Garlic Salt $ 11.95 Oregon harvested kosher sea salt infused with black garlic. This finishing salt adds a sweet, earthy flavor to ALL the meats and vegetables. *** Fun Fact: Black garlic is the result of the Maillard reaction- that is, heating bulbs of garlic over low heat over the course of several weeks to create super- UMAMI rich black cloves.

Spiceology Greek Freak $ 13.95
confession: I am currently adding the Greek Freak to everything I make with reckless abandon. Roasted vegetables with Greek Freak. ANY meat with Greek Freak. Add it to made from scratch Ranch Dressing . I dream of putting it in teh next caramelized onion dip I made for the next BBQ I’m invited to…. just sayin’.
