We all need to eat but food should be more than just sustenance. I don't know about you but I LOVE to eat. And because I'm hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) I eat a lot of food (something literally every two hours). Luckily for me, I used to be a chef, so I can make all that food taste pretty good. I find that because I eat so much, I am always looking for new flavors to keep me interested and I want to fix my meals quickly, otherwise I'd be cooking all day! So The Culinary Collection was created, based on many years of professional and personal cooking, to make my food more interesting and to help me cook it quickly and effortlessly. My name is Brien Seay and I'm the founder of Blackbird Food Company and creator of The Culinary Collection.Culinary Collection product.

I know, I know, you say there are hundreds of seasoning companies out there. So, what makes my company unique? Well, I used to cook at Chez Panisse, which is consistently rated as one of the top ten restaurants in the country. It's also recognized as the birthplace of California Cuisine, where fresh seasonal and local foodstuffs became popular. In addition to my contacts from working at Chez Panisse, I also founded and ran an award-winning food company where I cultivated relationships with some of the best artisan food suppliers in the world. And finally, with the Culinary Collection, I chose to focus on value: the highest quality ingredients at the lowest possible price. Of course it doesn't hurt that our packaging looks cool, is eco-friendly and practical (big window, resealable, excellent protection, etc.). And we use only 100% natural and organic ingredients.

Finally, a jar made for herbs & spices. Our Big Mouth Spice Jar has an opening big enough for you to reach in, pinch some herbs and rub them (to release their volatile oils) and easily big enough to accommodate a measuring spoon. Cool looking and stackable too!
