The Best Spice for Plant Based Meals!

Chef Regan who created Cedar Key Spice.Chef Regan

When it comes to really enjoying your plant based meals, we would like to introduce the best spice to you, which is CEDAR KEY SPICE. Of course, we think it's the best available since it was formulated by our son, Regan. 

Regan is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde-Park, New York. With his wife, Lynn, they now have their own breakfast and lunch business, the world famous YUM YUM KITCHEN located in central Florida. The concept of the spice was inspired by one of our family's favorite places on earth - Cedar Key, Florida. It is a small island fishing village on the Gulf of Mexico that was part of our kid's upbringing...including grand kids!  Fishing the flats and preparing the day's catch is still part of our lives. 

A Great Addition for Your Kitchen Cabinet!

A package of Cedar Key Spice.

The original CEDAR KEY SPICE Garlic Seasoning is good on just about anything you can conceive of. It will add a whole new dimension to the flavors of your meals. YUM YUM KITCHEN is the official test kitchen for all recipes, and Regan uses the spice in all of his menu items. It is not as salty as most prepared spice mixes.

When you have decided to go the plant based route, it becomes a challenge to make food taste good. Most people find that by changing to mostly plant based meals, the varieties of taste become a whole new satisfying addition. We have found that the best spice mix for vegetables is CEDAR KEY SPICE.

CEDAR KEY SPICE will certainly help you experience these new taste ideas. Barbara uses it every day to prepare her wonderful plant-based meals. In addition to preparing incredible vegetarian meals, this spice also enhances beef, poultry, and seafood on the grill, in the oven or on the stove top. It is also an all-purpose seasoning great for casseroles, side dishes, and appetizers. Try it - you will like it! For more information and to order this product: Cedar Key Spice Website.
