Welcome to the Hartz Spice Blog


The journey has begun. I can’t tell you how excited we are to be launching this new blog to accompany our Hartz Spice web site. Here you will find posts from Chef Charles Hartz that discuss cooking, recipes, spices and food. We hope you find them informative and helpful. The life of a spice trader is filled with story and adventure. So join us here to add some spice to your own story.

If you have not already done so, please visit our web site, hartzspice.com, and purchase a few of our spices to use in your own kitchen. We think they will change the way you cook. Or at the very least, the friends and family that you cook for will think that you have secretly been taking classes at the local culinary institute. We’ll never tell.
