So, it’s not every day that you get to test out recipes for a major chef. In fact, not sure when this amazing opportunity ever happens. But it did. For me. And I got to test out two recipes for the incredibly talented and well-known famous chef Douglas Katz. #PinchMe
You know Chef Katz from his restaurant, Fire, at Square in Cleveland. Silly to not have a reservation here because its always filled with happy (and hungry) individuals. The homemade cinnamon rolls and the homemade pickles are among my favorites. Remember how I raved about this restaurant here? You also know Chef Katz from the Katz Club Diner and his partnership at Provenance at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Now you will know him for the Fire Spice Company.
Fire Spice Company creates (aka grinds and prepares in house) a variety of handcrafted spice mixes and recipes to accompany those spices. I cook almost daily but have no clue how to use spices properly. If you’re like me, this new feature from Chef Katz is a dream come true. The spices are carefully hand-crafted and come with a recipe to wow your taste buds. Specially curated spices plus a recipe from a master chef? Sold.
Here’s what I also adore: The freshly toasted spice blends and recipes are presented in a unique and beautiful gift box. Presentation.
Fire Spice Company gives you all the key ingredients to prepare an aromatic and delicious cooking and dining experience. Translation? Your cooking in the kitchen just got a major upgrade.
I was one of several testers for the Fire Spice Company‘s spices before they hit the public. Based on the brrrrrr cold Cleveland weather, I opted for the chili spices (no brainer) and the mulled spices for a delicious batch of mulled wine. Want to join?
Simply by adding the spice kit, some orange zest and wine to a pot, I was able to create the most smooth and delicious mulled wine in only one hour!
While the wine was mulling on the stove, I was able to start the chili. With easy to follow directions along with the chili seasonings packet and a basic chili ingredients list for the grocery store, I was ready to begin!
Prep time took about an hour to get ready and the cooking/simmering of the meal took about another hour. Overall, the quickest and BEST tasting chili we’ve ever had. My husband was blown away!
I am SO excited for these seasoning packets to be open for the public (which happens so soon!) and ready to purchase! From what I’ve seen by testing out two of these seasoning packets, I am SOLD. Can’t wait to try out the other seasonings and the recipes that accompany them. I’m really curious about the shrimp and chicken recipes! I bet they are equally as yummy! Oh – and be sure to sign up for the monthly seasoning packet subscription that will be available!
