We are always on a mission to find the very best local, Nashville-made gifts for you. Our blog series, "Nashville Made" is a chance for us to give you a sneak peak into some of these amazing finds so that you get to know these local companies too.
If you cook or if you know someone that cooks, you need to know about J.M. Thomason's seasoning and spice blends. They're a little known company based out of Franklin, TN and they make six of the best seasoning blends in the state of Tennessee. Aside from the fact that they're local and make a great product, they also support putting an end to world hunger by making a donation from every sale to Heifer International. How amazing is that?
They currently have Bourbon BBQ (made with Belle Meade Bourbon!), Chili Lime, Hot Chicken, Porterhouse Steak, Streamside Angler, and Tuscan Dipping Oil blends. Not only do these blends bring big flavor to your meals, they're packaged beautifully, which makes them a great gift item too!
We've been finding fun ways to include these seasoning blends in gift collections paired with other Nashville made goods. We're pretty excited about the Hot Chicken blend because, after all, Nashville is the Hot Chicken Capital of the World! It's the perfect "you're so Nashville" gift.
You can find the Tuscan Dipping Oil seasoning in our Little Italy gift set that includes everything you need to make pasta night local and delicious.
We also especially loved using the Bourbon BBQ in combination with local BBQ sauce and some bourbon caramels for Father's Day gifts this year.
Word on the street is that they have 3 more blends being released this October - just in time for the Holidays!
These seasoning blends help make cooking fun, and easy. We've pinned a few recipes so that you can enjoy these flavors to their fullest. Try them out and them come back and let us know how it turned out!
