Sweet Shoppe 
For many chefs, desserts are
little more than an afterthought.
But with a spoonful of our Sweet Shoppe blend, Home Chefs can easily add an elegant ending to their meals. Just sprinkle some on ice cream, cookies, cake, brownies, cupcakes or add to coffee, or liqueur for the perfect finish.

flavorful addition to both sweet and savory dishes. Try a little on chicken, vegetables, or salads. Use it as a finishing salt to create an extra layer of flavor in breads, pastries – even cocktails!

No Home Chef's kitchen is
complete without Tellicherry
peppercorns, which are considered the finest pepper in the world. Left on the vine longer than other black peppercorns, these berries are given time to develop their complex, robust flavor to develop more fully.
