Other staff favorites include THE ISLANDS, confit ginger for hot travelers, and THAILAND for the lemongrass and cilantro flavors.

What is your favorite fish seasoning ?

MEDITERRANEAN, hands down, for whitefish, a lemon paradise. For salmon or other heavy ocean fish, we like THAILAND, THE ISLANDS, SMOKED SAN ANTONIO AND THE SOUTH OF FRANCE, and MADAGASCAR for sea food, lobsters and crustacean for the love of vanilla and peppercorn.

How about vegan-vegetarian protein like tofu ?

Our best seller is THE SOUTH OF FRANCE aromates for its amazing dried tomato and lemon peel flavors. We personally have a thing for SMOKED SAN ANTONIO, and THE ISLANDS rub that gives a ginger twist to all recipes! Also, THAILAND is mild and the lemongrass flavor kicks in a little…So delicious!
