What spice are you and why?

Sumac is an easy spice to fall for, and my favorite uses for it are amazingly simple. It is the most recurring addition to my weeknight salad dressings. and mixing this sweet spice into yogurt makes for the easiest but yummiest recipe.

What spice are you and why?

I am coriander.  I’m the spice in Belgian style wheat beers that all the hipster wannabes like to drink.  Without coriander this beer would taste like watered down orange juice.

Andy Rodriguez


I wouldn’t know what to do if my car, house or clothes didn’t smell like spices. I guess you could call me “ The Guy with the Smelly Briefcase” . As the 3rd generation President of All American Seasonings, I have been surrounded by the sweet, pungent, bitter, fiery taste of spices my entire life. I’ve been blessed to have a great family, and work with wonderful people. When not smelling the aromatic scent of my office, you can find me climbing the hills of Colorado on my road bike/mountain bike, golfing with my family, or lounging on a beach.

Mint. This herb is extremely versatile, tenacious, resilient, and best of all, it makes a great refreshing Cuban Mojito.
