While I really enjoy shopping at Red Stick Spice Co., they are not affiliated with Amazing Braising, and they have not asked me to include these links to their website.
Since I started this blog, I have been experimenting with more flavors, and that keeps me coming back to Red Stick Spice Company. I recently went through the last of my saffron, and I needed some more to make my Cinnamon Saffron Braised Sausages.
As always, one of the staff members was super friendly and helped me find what I needed. One of my favorite things about visiting Red Stick Spice is just getting to look at all the spices and spice blends. You can find just about anything you could want, and more than a couple you probably never knew about (like asafoetida).
Anne Milneck has created an atmosphere that is perfect for new cooks and seasoned professionals (pun definitely intended). In addition to the variety of spices, they also have a wide variety of flavored oils and balsamic vinegars. They usually have a sample out to taste. I haven’t been able to try it yet, but I can’t wait to get some of the meyer lemon olive oil.
Anne has worked hard to help promote culinary arts in Baton Rouge, offering guidance to those who are curious as well as offering classes in their teaching kitchen. The classes look like so much fun and cover a variety of topics, but I still haven’t been able to get into the cast iron cooking class.
You can explore their website, but I definitely suggest going in person so you can explore the spices and smell them before you buy. On a side note, it was because of Red Stick Spice that I first met the BouillaBabes, so I am also counting that as a positive thing.
