The Building Blocks of Flavor

What are Aromatics?

From humble beginnings amazing flavors emerge. Specific aromatic blends are used as a foundation of flavor in cooking.  Almost every culture has their own unique combination of aromatics.  For instance, in France they use Mirepoix and Duxelles, in Asia the heart of their cooking is a vibrant combination of ginger, garlic and scallions, a blend we call Three Star Blend.  From Italy to Louisiana, USA different aromatic combinations help define the tastes of the region.  Adding a different aromatic blend can completely change the overall flavor profile of a dish.

How do I use Culture Aromatics?

Our Aromatics can be used in any dish to change or enliven the flavor profile.  Add them to soups or sauces, dips or spreads, use in burgers or vegetable stir-fry.  Toss some Mirepoix or Three Star Blend into rice or quinoa while cooking and go from plain to spectacular!   Melt some butter in a pan, add Duxelles and the aroma will make your mouth water and your mind come to life with cooking ideas.  Experiment with Culture Aromatics and you will be rewarded with profoundly delicious food and a happy palate.  shop now

How are Culture Aromatics made?

At Culture Aromatics we hand select nutritious, organic vegetables and herbs and gently dehydrate them.  Once dehydrated we mill and combine the aromatics in specific proportions to create our fantastic aromatic starters.  Our drying process preserves the nutrients and flavor.  Savor the harvest long after the last tomato has been plucked from it's vine.

We preserve deliciousness.  

Harvest to table, our thoughtful process provides a powerful reminder of how food can transform our daily lives, our health and our relationships.
