Our Seasoning Blends...

~ Abracadabra takes you on a culinary magical mystery tour with cumin, sage, ginger and warm spices. 
~Aloha Java marries locally roasted coffee, ginger, cayenne, smoked paprika, brown sugar and Sichuan peppercorn for a spicy, smokey-sweet taste of the islands
~ Chipotle Brown Sugar Rub adds sweet heat to everything from pork chops to roasted carrots to popcorn.
~ Ian’s Fire is a force to be reckoned with, just like the young man for whom it is named. Use this spirited combo of heat, spice and sugar to add a kick to anything.
~ Magic Mediterranean will become you go-to seasoning. This earthy blend of cumin seed, fennel seed, sumac, thyme, sesame, cloves and black pepper makes your daily cooking anything but every day.

I love to cook, and since 2007, I've allowed my culinary curiosity to take me on a flavor journey. Whether serving a personal chef client, or working with a host to plan a special event, I've wanted to bring out the best in the ingredients I'm cooking with, allowing their natural flavors to shine with a little enhancement from salt, spices and herbs.  My first two blends - Magic Mediterranean and Chipotle Brown Sugar Rub - were a result of this experimentation.
With encourgement from family and friends, I launched Nutmeg Kitchens Handcrafted Seasonings in July, 2016. Three more blends soon joined the lineup - Ian's Fire, Aloha Java and Abracadabra.
My blends are truly handcrafted, right in my Redwood City home, and made with organic, gluten-free and kosher ingredients. But the most important ingredient is love. Always cook with love.

My entire family loves Nutmeg Kitchens Handcrafted Seasonings.  All are organically sourced and lovingly mixed to combine herbs and spices that give all my recipes a special touch. I love experimenting with my tried and true recipes by adding any one of Nutmeg Kitchens blends. They are spectacular!

Our family favorites are Chipotle Brown Sugar on pork, the Magic Mediterranean on everything, and Aloha Java on grilled beef. When you open the packets the aroma from all the different spices is so wonderful and so fresh. Thank you, Nutmeg Kitchens for such wonderful seasoning blends!

Whether you're an inexperienced home cook like me, or just looking to breathe new life into some of your classic dishes, I can't recommend these seasoning blends enough.
