Our Weeknight Dinner Collection features spices that you should always keep within reach. Use these to kick up the flavor of your everyday cooking, pronto. Just sprinkle on and enjoy. The spices come packed in a beautiful gift box.
The set of 3 spices includes:
Black Urfa Chili (1.8 oz. glass jar)
In southeastern Turkey, you'll find black Urfa chili (or its uncured red variety) on almost every table. It's delicious on kebabs and other grilled meats and veggies, cooked into stews and chilis, in salad dressings, sprinkled on fluffy scrambled eggs, and even mixed into brownies and other chocolate desserts for a little extra depth and a hint of heat.
Cured Sumac (2.3 oz. glass jar)
Our spectacular Cured Sumac grows wild around Gaziantep, Turkey and has a bright, sour, salty and slightly fermented flavor. It's a classic Middle Eastern finishing spice, and you can swap it for lemon juice in any recipe or use it to add character and brightness to salads, fish, meat or dips. It also makes a perfect topping for anything from hummus to salad to roasted veggies or meat to scrambled eggs.
Purple Stripe Garlic (1.8 oz. glass jar)
Our Purple Stipe Garlic Powder comes from an heirloom variety with a purple stripe on its papery skin and bulbs about half the size of what you're used to seeing. It's grown by a group of farmers in the mountains of northern Vietnam and has a savory and sweet flavor profile that adds depth and complexity to everything it touches.
The set of 6 spices includes everything above, plus:
Wild Mountain Cumin (1.5 oz. glass jar)
Our Wild Cumin Seeds are tiny, oblong and black with long stems, renowned in Afghanistan and throughout central and south Asia for their delicious flavor as well as their medicinal properties. Our cumin has a savory, penetrating aroma and bright, umami flavor evocative of grilled meats and sweet caramelized onions.
Flowering Hyssop Thyme (1.8 oz. glass jar)
Our Flowering Hyssop Thyme is a very special herb that is only grown in the Middle East, where it is the primary ingredient in the za'atar spice blend, along with sumac and sesame seeds. It has an ancient history of culinary and medicinal usage, and it has a beautiful floral, herbaceous flavor and aroma. Use it in place of regular thyme with roasted chicken, grilled vegetables and tomato sauces.
New Harvest Turmeric (1.9 oz. glass jar)
Our turmeric is grown organically in southern India by Dr. Salunhke, an expert farmer specializing in sustainable agricultural techniques. It has a sweet, floral flavor without the metallic bitterness found in lower-quality turmeric, and is perfect for both sweet and savory applications.

This set is a must for any foodie! The Smoked Paprika is the best I've ever had and the Silk Chili is awesome on anything. I didn't think Chili could have so much flavor on it's own. The Sumac has wonderful citrus notes that brighten any dish. Don't hesitate to buy this.
Gave it to my husband for a Christmas gift! He loves to cook so much that he puts a weekly Instagram story out named “cooking with quarantined Nick”. He was a big fan of these spices! He loves trying new and fun things to change up his meals! These spices are in big jars so they should last us a good amount of time. Highly suggest!!
The paprika has a wonderful smoked tone to it - and whoooeee does the chili have some kick to it. My favorite is the Sumac - such an interesting discovery! We have tried it on salads, on avo toast, eggs etc... it’s true that it fits well anywhere you’d think to add a bit of lemon - I’m in love!
I want to commend the company for their customer service. After an error in packing they immediately responded to the concern with replacement shipments to two packages which were in error. They did so promptly with express shipping in a way that was exemplary. It was the simplest and finest customer service that I have ever received. And by the way,all the spices that I have tried thus far have been outstanding in their flavor. Thank you, Kathryn and the company for your excellent service.
I have been experimenting with the cured sumac and black lime to add flair to recipes I’ve made for years. It’s fun to play with new flavors!
