Mediterranean Collection

Mediterranean cuisine is as diverse as it is delicious. Wine, olives, and bread often connect variations of the region's culinary themes. Spices often emphasize what makes those variations so unique, and delicious. The premium spices and blends in this gift collection will help you create a perfectly spiced plate of grilled shawarma, deliciously creamy dish of hummus, and the fluffiest of seasoned flatbreads. 

Gift box styles may vary.

Shawarma Seasoning

Shawarma is the now internationally popular style of meat preparation favored by Arabic street vendors. Descended from the Ottoman dish doner kebab, it's chicken, goat, fish or lamb marinated in seasoning and roasted on a vertical spit. Don't have a spit at home? Marinate your favorite cuts in our shawarma seasoning for a crowd-pleasing homemade version.

Mediterranean Herb Blend

This all-in-one herb blend can be used on pork, poultry, or potatoes. We really like it on lamb. Our Mediterranean Herb Blend is designed to be a perfect-every-time solution for the beginner cook, or to help hurry along a thirty-minute meal.

Sumac

The recipe for hummus at Israel's Abu Hassan restaurant has been a secret since the 1950s, but its presentation is a spectacle. A server with a big spoon scoops chickpea puree onto a plate, then spins the spoon and plate in opposite directions to spread it. A drizzle of olive oil and healthy sprinkle of lemony-tart sumac powder completes it. Visit our blog to learn more about sumac and see sumac substitutes.

Za'atar

From the Arabic word for thyme, our za'atar is mixed with lemony sumac, nutty sesame, marjoram, thyme, and oregano. Za’atar recipes can be very simple, spread it on a flatbread with olive oil, or use it in a chickpea salad. You can sprinkle it on meatballs, and kebabs for an extra level of flavor. For a great dip, simply mix into olive oil and plain yogurt.

Urfa Biber

Known also by its Kurdish name, Isot, biber is Turkish for pepper while Urfa is a province in Turkey's southeast. A cross-border cousin to Aleppo pepper, this pepper, mild in heat, and redolent of raisin, chocolate, and smoked, ripens to a dark maroon color on the plant. Great with sautéed eggplant and tomato dishes, it is also fantastic with lamb and kebabs.

Ras El Hanout

Arabic for 'top of the shop', this ancient Moroccan blend is rich, colorful, and aromatic. Built for flavoring grilled lamb, tagines, and couscous, each spice is individually ground before blending. Try mixing it in lamb burgers, stewing it with chicken, or mingling it with vegetable tagine. Saveur rated our version as their favorite.

Baharat

Just as South Asia has garam masala and North Africa has ras el hanout, the Middle East's all-purpose spice blend is baharat. Often added to frying onions to release its fullest flavor, baharat spice is a superb lamb rub. It also seasons kofta, chicken kebabs, and many vegetable recipes.
