Their web site bills them as a 100% Canadian, family-owned, woman-led company committed to adding value to the lives of Consultants, Customers and Canadian communities.
I first became familiar with Epicure while working at the Weight Watchers booth at a local women’s fair a couple of years ago. At that time I purchased a silicone Chipster. We have used it a lot since then and I did review it in November of 2013.
It turned out to be very much like a home party… on a somewhat larger scale. There were several tables surrounded by both female and male guests. Each table was nicely decorated with gift baskets full of Epicure goodies. It turned out that they were door prizes to be given away and raffled off throughout the evening.
At the front of the room there was a small cooking area staged, and each of the consultants took a turn at putting together a drink or a food dish with Epicure products, that was then divided up and served to the guests for sampling. They made a smoothie with one of their teas, chicken souvlaki and tzatziki, a microwave chocolate cake, and a veggie dip.
Everything was very tasty and put together so quickly. Most impressive! I came away that evening with a little sampler of some dips, and ideas for using them.
When my order was delivered a week or so later, I dug right into the box!
And I was really happy with what I found.
The Greeks seasonings kit contains a jar of lemon dilly mix for tzatziki, a jar of souvlaki seasoning, and a jar of herbs for salad dressing. And of course there are recipe cards for ideas to use them.
We used those appie plates that same day at cocktail hour and have used them many times since. They will be just right for sushi too.
The first meal I prepared with the Greek Seasonings was delicous. I made Chicken Souvlaki from the Epicure recipe card, along with Tzatziki to top some baked potatoes. The pictures aren’t much, but the meal was fabulous… quick and easy, just like they promised!
And then a few days later, I made up some of the Greek Salad dressing. I love Greek Salad and this dressing is just perfect!
And later in the week I made another one... this time on a bed of Spring greens.
I am so happy to have found these products, and thrilled that they are gluten free and packaged in a facility so close to my own home! EPICURE.
And just in case you are wondering... no, I am not in any way affiliated with this company or the brand. I am just a very satisfied customer!
