Sourced in whole form whenever possible, they grind their spices only after your order is placed within 24 hours of shipment. The only way to get more flavor is to grind them at home.
Though you can choose your salt, herbs or spices individually, the website also features terrific gift spice selections that will take the guess-work out of what to send–BBQ Regional Rubs, Curry Classics, Global Pepper Packs, Sea Salt Sampler–just to name a few.
If you are craving the authentic taste of international fare, you can also choose gift sets from 11 different geographic regions including Africa, India, Carribean, The Middle East and Europe.
You can order spices in a range of sizes in either bags or airtight glass jars so you can order just the right amount.

First the good news: you can learn the secrets of Jeni Britton Bauer’s ice cream making by picking up her New York Times best-selling book, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home. The cookbook was dubbed the “homemade-ice cream-making Bible” by The Wall Street Journal and earned Jeni a James Beard Award, America’s most coveted honor for those writing about food and the culinary arts.
Now here’s better news: Skip the DIY route and just have some pints of ice cream, sorbet or frozen yogurt delivered right to your door. Jeni opened Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in 2002 in Columbus, Ohio’s North Market. Her ice creams have been praised by Time (“America’s best”), Cooking Light (“deadly delicious”), and Saveur (“revolutionary”), while Food & Wine stated, “No one makes ice cream like Jeni Britton Bauer.”
Jeni and her kitchen team make every ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt with grass-grazed Ohio cream, local produce, and carefully sourced ingredients including rare, fair-trade vanilla and bean-to-bar chocolate. Signature flavors include Wildberry Lavendar, Whiskey and Pecans, Salty Caramel, or how about Goat Cheese with Red Cherries. Tempted? Me too!
