Don't miss a single recipe from Picky Palate: sign up for my weekly newsletter


Spice of Life :) Plus McCormick Spices/Spice Rack Giveaway!

I had an incredible opportunity to go to the McCormick Gourmet Kitchens last week with some other wonderful bloggers:ย  Jaden of Steamy Kitchen, Shauna of Gluten Free Girl and Nicole of Pinch My Salt. I am really excited to work with these talented women and McCormick Gourmet.

We all met for dinner where the Chef mixed up some drinks and prepared a gorgeous dinner. After not eating all day from traveling this was quite the treat. I snapped some photos of our time with McCormick Gourmet, take a look ๐Ÿ™‚

When we arrived to the McCormick Kitchens we were greeted by the lovely McCormick staff. Chef Len fed us some delicious appetizers. Tale a look below ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is our menu for the evening.

Curried Chicken and Mushroom Spring Rolls. INCREDIBLE! Will definitely be making these again.

Marinated Shrimp with Mango and Radishes. Perfect little appetizer.

Dirty Martini Steak Kabobs and Salad. What a creative recipe for kabobs, full of flavor. Loved these.

Sweet and Smoky “Pork and Beans.” I think we all had a few helpings of this one ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheesecake Tart with Popcorn Crust and Berries. This cheesecake caused quite the uproar, not kidding. The flavor combinations here are unreal. This will be made at my house very soon.

The next morning, we met for breakfast and enjoyed:ย  Tomato Zucchini Frittata, Cinnamon Apple Nut Muffins, Pepita Pumpkin Bread.

How good does this look?!

…and this?

This was one of my favorite parts of the trip…..along with the incredible meals, but learning about the history of the McCormick Spices was so fascinating. Made me appreciate what goes into each jar I see at the store.

We also got to sample and smell a variety of spices. The vanilla test was the most interesting. If you’ve ever doubted buying pure vanilla….don’t. It wasn’t even a comparison when sampled side by side.

Later in the day, we each whipped up 2 simple recipes that used a regular spice and then a roasted spice to sample and see the difference in taste. I had a creamy cinnamon dip that I wanted to bottle up and eat with a spoon. It was delicious!

Making my dip!

The other ladies Jaden, a sweet McCormick rep, Shauna and Nicole making their recipes ๐Ÿ™‚

It was time for lunch and talk about a feast. This salmon was one of the best salmon I have ever had. Will be making it for my family. Smoked Paprika Roasted Salmon

Will be making these too! Harvest Vegetables with Roasted Ginger & Cumin

This was another recipe that we couldn’t stop eating, so delicious and I think it was unanimous that we will all be making these ribs! Chipotle Cinnamon Baby Back Ribs

As if we hadn’t had enough food, we ended our meal with these cute “cup” cakes with a bite. Loved the heat that came through with each bite . Mexican Hot Chocolate “Cup” Cakes

    I love the new McCormick Recipe Inspirations. Tonight we tried one for the first time, the Apple and Sage Pork Chops – and they were delicious!!! But I think my overall favorite McCormick spice is their garlic powder. I use it in basically all of my meals and am always sure to buy the McCormick brand!

    Maria Ortiz-Cintron says:

    I LOVE Smoked Paprika… It makes ALL the difference. It has this wonderful depth of flavor that makes any dish that much tastier. I think that “smoked” or “roasted” anything (spices) is always better than the alternative. To me, it’s the equivalent of what they do in Indian cooking, where they toast their spices to “wake up” their flavor and nuances…Talking about food is so much fun!

    My favorite is McCormick’s Roasted Ground Cumin. My husband is a very picky eater, but I managed to sneak the cumin into a orange/cumin sweet and spicy tilapia recipe, and he loved it! Adding spices can take the boring recipes he likes and make them more fun for someone like me!

    VickiT says:

    Oh gosh, my favorites? UMmmmmmm ALL of them? LOL I cook and bake a lot so I probably have almost every single one they sell. I guess on a daily basis I am always reaching for my garlic and onion powder. I think that goes into almost every main dish I make. I also use cumin and fennel quite often but the fennel I like crushing myself because the flavor is just that much fresher by doing that. For cooking on the grill though their Montreal Steak seasoning is a MUST have. The flavor of that on steaks, ribs and even chicken too is incredible. My husband even agrees with that and won’t cook on the grill without that one.

    The bad thing about McCormick spices? Well, at least in MY kitchen right now is that almost all need to be replaced because many are beyond their freshness date. I would LOVE to win this to replace some of those.

    I am a HUGE onion powder fan because my husband *thinks* he’s allergic to onions and won’t eat anything that he can ‘see’ onions in–even onion flakes–so I use the onion powder equivalent in anything that needs onions in it for the great flavor~!

    First off, let me say that I LOVE your blog. I have made so many of your delicious recipes and my husband and I are big fans ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite McCormick spice has to be Cumin. I add it to so many recipes and it really kicks up the flavor. It has such a distinct aroma that I love. I don’t even have to label it in my spice rack because I can tell what it is from just a little whiff.

    I love the poultry seasoning! I use it whenever I’m doing roast chicken, and although i’m thousands of miles away from home, when I open the bottle, for a minute, it always smells like Thanksgiving and my mom. And It makes the chicken taste great! Turkey breast too!
