Chef Kai Chase combines her unique background — Californian, Creole, Cuban and African-American roots — to create her Universal Spice Collection, with 5 Spice Habanero & Ginger, Warm Cajun & Chicory and California Citrus Salt. ($49.95.)
Formerly a private chef to celebrities (Michael Jackson, for one) she segued into creating her own spice line, cooking recipes, cookbook, and in the works is a TV show.
We got her spices to try and found them as unique as the Chef. The blends were unlike anything we had in our spice collection and added a special flavor profile to even veggies.
A perfect gift for any cooks on your holiday list.
