If you happen to be visiting Southern California make a stop on quaint Main Street in Ventura and be sure to pop into Spice-Topia. No plans to be near the pacific coast? Check out their website and order something to enhance your cuisine.
One of my lucky readers will win a basket of some of their most popular items!
They have everything from spices to teas, mouth watering marinades, BBQ sauce, balsamic reductions, olive oils, one-of-a-kind products for kitchens and cooks and so much more. Everything is from organic and fair trade certified suppliers, including products from some of Ventura’s favorite local vendors! Great prices too.
Owner Ashley Pope is sweet and helpful, she’ll help you pick out just the right items for your needs.

They offer cooking classes with professional chefs so if you’re in the area sign up!
If you follow this blog you know I’m not a fan of cooking, I’d rather be collaging, crafting or on the tennis court than in the kitchen. That’s why I love the wonderful things they carry, it’s an easy way to make food taste like you’ve slaved in the kitchen while also allowing true cooks to create special dishes.
The delicious spicy red pepper and garlic flavor of the Grumpy Grandpa honey from Henry’s Humdingers made my stir fry taste like a true gourmet chef had been in my kitchen. The fabulous Blueberry Balsamic from enFuso is terrific on salads and makes a yummy marinade and the spices we tried made the flavor of our meals come alive!
