The Golden Tongs Limited Edition Blend Is SOLD OUT.

Once upon a time, we invited three strangers (aka the winners of our Golden Tongs Sweepstakes) to Spokane, WA to be honorary Spiceologists for a weekend.

Each was paired up with a Spiceology Flavor Expert and together three new spice blends were conceptualized, formulated and used to make a communal dinner. (That sh** was delicious, just sayin’.)

But why not share this deliciousness? Fast forward to where you voted on which blend sounded the tastiest, and one was crowned our Golden Tongs winner…

Meet the
Tasty Winner

For a limited time only, you can get your hands on this Italian-inspired blend. And we’re not talkin’ Americanized-Italian… like, no chicken parm type BS.

From rustic dishes like roasted meats and veggies to grilled dishes like octopus, these spices go back to the Renaissance and complement many Italian dishes.

And trust us, you don’t want to miss this one (especially if you’re already a Greek Freak lover; this is like Greek Freak’s well-traveled, edgier younger cousin).

This was a small batch limited-run blend that is now sold out.

Let us introduce you to our Golden Tongs winning blend creator:

Brian Dodero

Owner and Chef at Aperitivo Wine Bar in Santa Barbara, CA and lover of all things Italian.

Working hand-in-hand with Over the Fire cooking expert, the one and only Derek Wolf, they created a spice blend inspired by the flavors of Brian’s porchetta dish at his restaurant.

And let’s just say, the two of them had a little too much fun together. I guess that’s what happens when you put a beanie-loving, Chef from Santa Barbara and a social media phenomenon who loves everything about flavor together. Who woulda thunk it.

The Making of a

Winning Blend
