Goodbye, Prime Rib Roast Seasoning, hello Grand Lake Shake!

In the past, many customers skimmed over our Prime Rib Roast Seasoning, thinking "I never make Prime Rib," or "I don't eat meat." Little did they know they were missing a versatile seasoning that has so many uses beyond prime rib!

This blend is oniony, garlicky and peppery with hints of mustard and celery. It's that perfect combination of savory flavors that works wonders in a creamy dip for veggies or chips or in creamy salad dressings.

It's also a great match for roasted vegetables such as potatoes or beets, on top of fried eggs, sprinkled into beans and greens, and even in a homemade Bloody Mary.

And so, without further ado, we introduce Grand Lake Shake, named after our very own Grand Lake neighborhood in Oakland. Here are a few recipes to try:
