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.
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. It's our best-selling spice, so you need to get a jar.
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.
Sun-Dried Tomato Powder (2.5 oz. glass jar)
Our Sun-Dried Tomato Powder is made from a special tomato variety grown across Turkey's Aegean Sea coastline. Sun-dried tomatoes are a natural source of umami, and this tomato powder adds a bump of rich savory tanginess.
Child's Spice Pocket Apron
This durable, colorful apron with spice drawings on the pocket will keep a holiday sweater clean while the young chef helps cook the meal. Machine-washable!
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!
A sheet of our bright, spicy magnets will keep a young chef's small hands busy while they wait.
