Because of the diverse nature of the many different restaurants and chefs Brian Henry has worked under he is highly proficient at a wide range of cuisines.

Brian’s cooking is seasonal, inventive and smart, but in no way unapproachable or fussy. When he is coaxed out of the kitchen and starts talking about food, his passion and knowledge are instantly recognizable.

"Chef Brian Henry cooked a series of delicious appetizers for us as we sat around a table in the kitchen". Thanks

Gastronomically yours,

The Spice Co.

Spices and herbs have been a routine part of our lives for several thousands of years. Most commonly they have been consumed as ingredients to enhance the flavor of our food. These ingredients have also applied to other practices including magic, perfume, religion, embalming and preservation. Additionally we find numerous cultures that have developed complete medicinal systems based upon the use of spices and herbs to treat the human condition.

The Spice Co. is now available at select retailers.

The result of so many plants and their associated parts being in high demand fueled global economies and grew empires as the spice trade unfurled like flags on the global stage with pepper, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg being the first ingredients to fuel the commerce of spices.

Those in the spice trade were as mysterious as the spices themselves as the traders would spin tales about these far off lands where the spices came from which often raised the price of goods when one may have to fight off winged creatures and risk life and limb against fabled creatures whose very existence was so charged with guarding the spices.

As a child this shroud of mystery was fueled by National Geographic magazines and then further enhanced by travelling to a handful of lesser developed countries has led me to create a line of spice rubs and blends.
