Karen formed the company in 2000 while living in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Karen had just graduated from culinary school and was looking for a way to apply her new skills. Herbs and spices, she realized, are the most expensive and often least appreciated product in any kitchen. Forging bonds with other chefs, she began creating personalized spice blends for their use. Karen continues to develop custom spice blends for both the wholesale and retail markets. When you visit her Suttons Bay store you'll find an array of the highest quality spices, spice blends, seasonings, hot sauces, sausage supplies and seasonings, popcorn and cooking supplies.
