Flash Post: Spice Up Your Life

What It Is:Ask 1,000 chefs and virtually every one of them will tell you: the key to superior cooking is buying quality-grade spices. If you’ve got a fledgling foodie in your cadre of friends, consider picking up one of the organic spice kits from Brooklyn-based company PLANT Design Studio. Each kit is actually BPA-free plastic containers that screw together for a solution that’s not only convenient to store (or display), but also keeps moisture out. Choose from a set of general spices, or indulge in a pal’s favourite cuisine by selecting the Mexican, Indian, or Thai essentials. Can I point out major brownie points to PLANT for having their kits assembled by the Mid-Hudson Workshop for the Disabled? They provide jobs for those that are physically or medically handicapped. Kudos.

Who It’s For:Your holiday dinner hostess, as a thoughtful culinary gift. Your mom, so she can spice up the kitchen. Your dervish-in-the-kitchen spouse, as a way to kick up their already amazing meals to another level.

What It Costs:The big ‘Mobile Foodie Survival Kit’ is $26 USD, while the essentials kits are $20 each. Shipping is a bit on the higher side, but ultimately not insurmountable – $14 for the big ‘un.

Where It’s At:The aforementioned PLANT Design Studio.

    I like these a lot and knowing you’re supporting the handicapped makes it a win-win situation. Would be fun to wrap as well — roll it up and cinch the ends with ribbon. Done! #cgg
