The Localist: Bonnell’s Creole Spice Mix

Get ready to revolutionize your kitchen.

Chef Jon Bonnell of Bonnell’s Fine Texas Cuisine has his own line of spices that can be purchased in the restaurant or on their website.

After dining at Bonnell’s a few weeks ago, I picked up a jar of the Creole spice mix. I consider myself a pretty good cook and looked forward to using the spices, but hadn’t intended for them to revolutionize my kitchen. Later that week, I thawed two pork chops, rubbed them down with the Creole spice mix and threw them on the grill. I paired the chops with a simple salad, and dinner was served. Even after all of the incredibly complex meals I have made, it was quite possibly my fiancées favorite dinner. Needless to say, Bonnell’s spices will definitely be a staple in this house.
