Inspired by owner and Chef Marlene Bernstein, Savour This Kitchen is rolling out their newest line of spices-just in time for fall and holiday gift giving. At $5.00 per tin, the spice line features a variety of internationally inspired blends-all 100% vegan, gluten free, sugar free, and salt free. By using ingredients like dried orange peel, garlic, turmeric, and mint, home cooks can enhance their dishes with ease.
Drawing inspiration from Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean flavors, the line features four signature blends: Merchant, Gypsy, Seafarer, and Nomad. We tried the Nomad on a pork loin, and the Seafarer on both fish and chicken. With the addition of a little sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, STK easily elevates your plate from boring to wow, any night of the week.
What’s in the tin:
NOMAD – A little bit of Morocco comes to the table with this mix of sumac, sesame seeds, mint, thyme, coriander, onion, and red pepper flakes. Sprinkle it on hummus, on grilled veggies, or over your favorite salad for extra flavor and texture. Would also work well with grilled lamb chops.
GYPSY – Gypsy is a vibrant mix of cardamom, cinnamon, clove, ginger, anise seed, paprika and black pepper. The brand recommends sprinkling it over vanilla ice cream, stirring it in hot coffee or warm cocoa, or using it in a cake for a unique spicy, sweet, and savory taste.
SEAFARER – Fresh bold notes of tarragon, parsley, ginger, basil, fennel seeds, sumac and garlic combine together to create Seafarer. This blend will pair beautifully with any poultry or seafood dish, and we also liked it on roasted potatoes and green beans with lemon zest.
MERCHANT – A blend of turmeric, paprika, cumin, clove, cinnamon, onion, and black pepper makes up Merchant. Stir into mac and cheese, sprinkle it over roasted cauliflower, or throw it in your taco mix for a bit of Middle Eastern curry flair.
