This versatile blend is our best selling all-purpose seasoning. It’s named after the vibrant community of Central Street in Evanston, where our flagship Illinois store is located. We take great care to mix this old world seasoning the old-fashioned way: each batch is hand mixed, stirred 1500 times and triple-sifted to ensure just the right flavor and color for your cooking.
Use it on fried or baked chicken or fish, hamburgers, sliced tomatoes, any type of potatoes, steamed vegetables, steaks, ribs, chicken soup, goulash, beef stew, pork roast, sandwiches, or eggs. Use about 1 teaspoon per pound for meats, and 1 teaspoon per cup for soups or stews.
In our Milwaukee shops, this blend is known as Old World Third Street Seasoning, for the neighborhood where our original shop has stood for over a quarter century.
