The Spice Lab
In an industry filled with competitors, Brett and Jennifer Cramer's chemistry-themed spice business is a true original. The couple's love of intriguing flavorings and unique packaging is evident in a product line that features test tubes filled with exotic salts and spices from around the globe. The tubes sit in wood bases for an elegant presentation, making each set a great gift idea for the culinary artists in your life. Many of the sets come with reference cards that identify the salt, explain the origins and offer recommended uses for each seasoning variety, which will doubtlessly come in handy as these collections are instant conversation pieces. Whether you're a seasoned navigator of the sometimes strange world of from-scratch cooking or a landlubber newbie just beginning to test out your gourmet legs, products from The Spice Lab help you create mouthwatering flavors you'll be proud to present to friends and family alike. Offerings include more than 180 salts sourced from over 30 countries across the globe. Experiment by using smoked salts to enhance roasted and grilled meats, or garnish your crudo with a sprinkle of Fleur de Sel that will make the dish's subtle flavors truly come to life. Spice Lab's collection of exotic peppers proves that this versatile spice is about much more than heat. End your meal on a sweet note with brightly colored sugars that are equally at home dressing up a cupcake or glittering on the rim of your martini glass.
