Get ready to season with authority! Our friend Marc Murphy is a chef, author, restaurateur and TV presence, and he dreamt up this trio of easy-to-use, powerfully delicious blends. Marc explains, "My goal with these blends is to show the home cook how flavorful they can make basic dishes simply by using these incredible spices and herbs. This is wicked simple stuff!"

Riviera - 1.3 oz glass jar

"Riviera is the perfect mix of French and Italian flavors I love so much from my childhood growing up in France and Italy. Think of it as an Italian Herbes de Provence and use it on anything and everything — from roast chicken to grilled fish and even a simple vinaigrette." -Marc

Ingredients: Rosemary, hyssop thyme, oregano buds, silk chili.

Pairings: Tomato Sauce • Roast Chicken • Soups

Cooking: Roasted PotatoesSpatchcock Chicken with Vegetables

Chef's Best Friend - 3.5 oz glass jar

"Having the perfect ratio of salt and pepper at your fingertips makes cooking easier and guarantees that nothing coming out of your kitchen will be under-seasoned. Chef's Best Friend is my original Season With Authority mix, and it’s one that I always have at the ready by my stove." -Marc

Ingredients: Salina crystal salt (76%), Zanzibar black peppercorns.

Pairings: Pasta • Steak • Roasted Vegetables

Cooking: Sautéed EscaroleSimple Tomato Salad

Surf 'n' Turf - 2.6 oz glass jar

"Black lime is a little-known spice that should be a staple in every person’s pantry. It’s like squeezing a lemon on your dish but even bolder and more developed. Combined with kelp for a little hit of umami, Surf 'n' Turf is great on fish and roasted vegetables and always pairs well with a good olive oil." -Marc

Ingredients: Black lime, garlic, black pepper, salt (11%), oregano buds, fermented white pepper, wild Icelandic kelp.

Pairings: Seafood • Grilled Chicken • Crispy Potatoes

Cooking: Roasted Zucchini with Tomato Vinaigrette, Pork Chops
