A box full of beautifully made essentials that will make time in the kitchen easier and more enjoyable.
This set includes:
- Three essential mixes for any busy foodie: Taco Spice, Herbes de Provence, and Seafood Chowder Seasoning. These are high quality ingredients, organic, and where possible, fair trade by L.O.V.E. Organic Vital Energy in Dartmouth;
- Hickory smoked salt, harvested from off the coast of Oak Island, and smoked and flavoured, by Pure Atlantic Harvest Op in Martin's Point;
- a hand-woven rope trivet by Warm, Wooly and Woven in Halifax;
- Garlic-infused extra virgin olive oil, and Modena Balsamic Vinegar by Tucan Olive Oil Co in Cole Harbour. Infusions are done on site, by hand.
The Seafood Chowder Seasoning is wonderful not only for flavouring chowders, but also for cooking on fish, or even making a dip with some plain yogurt and sour cream. Yum!
Unlike the grocery store brands of taco seasoning, which are heavy on paprika, L.O.V.E.'s taco seasoning uses ancho powder as the base. The flavour is better, and stronger, meaning you do not need to use as much in your meat. This packet goes a long way!
I've used all of these mixes, and use them regularly. They really are an amazing addition to any kitchen.
