For the aspiring, budding or accomplished young chef, a set of three easy-to-use spices, plus a spice-themed apron, a puzzle and fridge magnets.

The spices all work beautifully to sprinkle and finish a dish, and they are also wonderful for more complex cooking and baking projects for the child who already knows their way around the kitchen.

Our Spice Pocket Apron is fun, bright and (most importantly!) machine-washable, and the Fridge Magnets and Spice Sourcing Puzzle are perfect distractions while you wait for a kitchen timer to ring or a pot of water to boil.

What's included:

Royal Cinnamon

Our Royal Cinnamon is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and it exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized. Use it in place of Saigon or other cinnamons in pastries and baked goods, or sprinkle into rich, savory meat or tomato-based dishes.

Tasting notes: Brown Butter • Buckwheat Honey • Orange Peel


  • Beautiful in baked goods, spice cookies, oatmeal and desserts
  • Brew with your favorite coffee or tea

Cured Sumac

Our spectacular Cured Sumac is an easy swap for lemon juice in any recipe, or use it to add character and brightness to salads, fish, meat or dips. It has a bright, sour, salty and slightly fermented flavor.

Tasting notes: Sour Cherry • Salt & Vinegar • Sunny Acidity


  • Swap for lemon juice in any recipe
  • Sprinkle over hummus, salad, roasted veggies, meat or scrambled eggs

Sun-Dried Tomato Powder

Our Sun-Dried Tomato Powder adds a bump of rich, umami flavor to any dish. Sauté the powder with aromatics like onions or garlic, use as a garnish on roasted vegetables or add to rubs for grilled meats.

Tasting notes: Herb garden • Umami bomb • Pizza


  • Coat veggies in olive oil and toss, add to meat rubs and stews
  • Sprinkle over sliced tomatoes (trust us), focaccias and pizzas

Spice Pocket Apron (Child-size)

This durable, colorful apron with spice drawings on the pocket will keep a holiday sweater clean while the young chef helps cook the meal.


Spice Sourcing Puzzle

A great family activity or solo endeavor, our beautiful hand-drawn puzzle features a world map with spices in their country of origin.

Bonus points if you find the narwhal!

Fridge Magnets

A sheet of our bright, spicy magnets will keep a young chef's small hands busy while they wait.
