A new Charlotte company, Glory Kitchen, is spicing things up in Charlotte. Chef and restauranteur Bruce Moffett is singing their praises, saying that the mixtures "contribute the perfect balance of flavor that will make your dish one step about authentic."

Operating out of a Charlotte commercial kitchen, the Glory Kitchen team makes six varieties of nut and spice blends which are composed entirely of raw nuts, seeds, herbs, spices and peppers. Each type represents a region of the world – corresponding names for Asian, Mexican, French, Indian, Italian, and Middle Eastern flavors are currently available. The blends can be used as a finishing touch over your roast chicken or pasta OR as a marinade for any number of items. 

“As a person who loves to spend time in the kitchen developing fresh new recipes, I was inspired to create a healthy, flavorful and crunchy topping for some of my favorite recipes” said Margie Bruner, owner and founder of Glory Kitchen, in a news release. “Our nut and spice blends add amazing flavor to everyday foods … they are all made of natural plant-based ingredients … are vegan and gluten, chemical and preservative free.”

Need a bit of inspiration? Follow the Glory Kitchen team on Instagram, Facebook, and more – Bruner even sends out a recipe featuring one of the spice blends each Wednesday morning via the Glory Kitchen website.
