Unlike most supermarket spices, Spice Revolution’s products are not treated and preserved with radiation. The result is a collection of spices with greater sensory intensity, albeit a forgivable shorter shelf life. Finely attuned to the lifespan and freshness of their spices, Spice Revolution nevertheless removes the guesswork out of seasoning as each spice is labeled with a precise expiration date. You won’t find Fastiggi’s style of individualized attention at a supermarket; you can share with her your ingredients and she will prescribe you a palatable assortment of seasonings, wonderful for weekend cookouts or mellow home dinners.

Fastiggi’s extensive reserve of spices lends itself toward occasionally eccentric, yet consistently scrumptious confectionery creations.
