You Don’t Need a Silver Fork to Eat Good Food
At Magic Seasoning Blends, we live to help everyone bring a dash of excitement to food.
We pour our passion for flavor into every one of our fine-tuned seasonings, smoked meats and more. Our portfolio of products is carefully crafted from the finest-quality ingredients from around the world to deliver rich, consistent flavor.
We have always been committed to the utmost quality. For nearly 35 years, owner and founder Chef Paul Prudhomme personally tasted and tested every ingredient before it was deemed worthy of our blends. Today, our R&D and Quality Assurance teams take on the task to ensure every product we make lives up to Chef Paul’s high standards. And while some other seasoning brands contain up to 90% salt, our proprietary blends average only 30%—the rest of the flavors come from dried vegetables, herbs and spices.
From the classic seasonings that launched a flavor revolution to our new, trend-forward blends, we are continuing Chef Paul’s mission to put an end to dull food forever.
Magic Seasoning Blends® products are:
- Made with premium-quality herbs and spices
- MSG free
- Preservative free
- GMO free
Do Something Nobody Else Has Done Before or Done Since
Magic Seasoning Blends was born from Chef Paul Prudhomme’s simple desire to infuse more flavor into life.
Since our beginning in 1982, Magic Seasoning Blends has been known for exceptional quality, flavor, balance, consistency and ease-of-use.
Following years spent working in restaurants across the country, Chef Paul opened the famous New Orleans restaurant K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen®. He infused his own dried herb and spice blends inspired from his travels into the menu. The unique blends received such acclaim customers began to ask if they could take them home, and an institution of flavor was born.
We don’t take short cuts when it comes to quality—that’s why all of our dry spices, rubs, bottled sauces, smoked meats and marinades are crafted with exceptional ingredients and a dash of passion in our state-of-the-art 125,000-square-foot plant in New Orleans.
Today, our family of products can be found in home kitchens, retail stores and foodservice operations in all 50 states and 37 countries around the world.
