We’ve made some changes in order to bring you the best online shopping experience possible. If this is your first time here, welcome! You can learn more about us before shopping for your favorite spices.

Our small batch, handcrafted blends are made with carefully sourced ingredients to complement your everyday dishes. You’ll be able to taste the difference with our premium quality herbs and spices.

Shawarma: Shawarma is a Middle Eastern street food favorite, with good reason! Thin slices of meat are stacked cone-style on long skewers, often prepared with generous amounts of seasoning.

When ordering shawarma, you’ll receive a generous helping of thinly sliced, mouthwateringly seasoned meat usually in some type of flat bread. This Shawarma blend does a wonderful job of bringing the Middle Eastern street food experience right to your kitchen, no matter what you happen to be cooking! We personally love making shawarma kebabs on the grill.

Fun fact: In some regions, baharat is also added to the mix of spices used for making shawarma.

June 9th is National Meal Prep Day: Meal prepping can become a little tiresome and repetitive – trust us, we’ve been there. Luckily we’ve refreshed our website and we’ve got some fantastic new recipes that could really help spark some culinary creativity again!

June 11th is National Corn on the Cob Day: Grilled, roasted, or included as part of a summertime salad, corn is always fresh and fun! Have you tried our Corn on the Cob Seasoning yet? It’d be a great way to celebrate this food holiday.

We missed the Stuart's stand at the Public Market, so we checked out their store front for the first time. The space was larger and nicer than I expected. The woman working at the store was helpful and attentive, offering samples and recipe cards for spices we browsed. We were told they also have online ordering available.
