Choosing A Better Food Supplier

After struggling for months with poor food vendors, we realized that we needed to start shopping around for a new food supplier. I knew that our restaurant was only as good as the food that we served, so we started meeting with different vendors and trying to tell what set them apart. After meeting with several different businesses, we were really impressed with one supplier that really knew their stuff. This blog is all about what to look for in a food supplier and how to avoid problems with poor quality foodservice and ingredients. You never know, some of this advice could make your restaurant truly special.

Two Multipurpose Snack Seasonings You Can Make Yourself

There are plenty of delicious snack seasonings you can purchase at the store and directly from manufacturers. Sometimes, however, you might want to get a little creative and do something different. If this is how you're feeling, then making your own snack seasonings at home is a great option. Here are two multipurpose snack seasonings you can create in your home kitchen.

Spicy Garlic Seasoning

This seasoning has a bold combination of garlic, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. It's great sprinkled on popcorn and also on pretzels. You could even make your own baked snack mix by mixing some of it with a little canola oil and tossing crackers and cereal in the mix. Here's what you need to create the seasoning itself:

  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • paprika
  • finely ground sea salt
  • black pepper

The best part of this recipe is that it's so flexible. You can adjust the amounts of the ingredients according to your own taste. A good starting point is to try using equal parts of all of the ingredients. From there, you can taste the mixture and add more of any ingredients you would like to taste more prominently. This approach also allows you to make a little or a lot of the mixture, depending on your needs. If you combine, for instance, a tablespoon of every ingredient, you'll end up with a small batch of the seasoning. If you instead combine a quarter cup of each ingredient, you'll end up with more seasoning that you can store and use again and again. 

Sweet and Spicy Seasoning

This seasoning is mostly sweet, but with a hint of spice. You can sprinkle it over buttered popcorn, but it's also surprisingly good on ice cream. Some people even sprinkle some of it on buttered toast for a unique treat. To make a batch, you need:

  • white sugar
  • brown sugar
  • cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • onion powder
  • allspice

As with the other recipe, there is flexibility as to how you choose to proportion these ingredients. A good starting point is to use equal parts of everything, but a bit less salt. Mix all of these ingredients together until the mixture looks uniform. Transfer it to a jar or another sealed container, and store it in a cool, dry place.

With these snack seasoning recipes on-hand, you'll never have boring snacks again. Play around with the proportions until you find ones you like, and enjoy.
