A guide to goosing up the kitchen
Our mission is to shake up the home-cooking world, and to guide you along the way.
Who says a home chef can’t make food as good as a commercial one? Frustrated with professional snobbery when it comes to cooking, we decided to take what we learned over decades in the commercial spice business at Red Goose Spice Company and use it to help everyday cooks expand their repertoires.
Our favorite words: small, vibrant, fresh
We use the same sources of ingredients from all over the world as we do for our commercial customers. We order in small, carefully curated batches to ensure vibrant flavor. We reject sub-standard products. And we blend in manageable batches to guarantee freshness for a full year from the date of purchase.
Just about everyone at Savvy Goose has a background in the culinary industry. Our staff includes line cooks, sous chefs, pastry chefs, front of the house employees, culinary students, culinary instructors, and more! The passion for taste and quality runs deep here. You'll notice the difference with every variety you sample.
