Sometimes we all make a dish that "needs a little something" or "is missing something", well these awesome makers will fill that flavorless void and help you cook tastier plates at home. From adding Umami hits to spicy goodness to earthy yums and aromatic funkiness, here are six products that create a highway to memorable home cooking. 

1. Fly By Jing - @flybyjing

Founded Fly By Jing in 2018, inspired by the amazing flavors of her hometown Chengdu and its famous fly restaurants— soulful hole-in-the-wall eateries so good they attract diners like flies.  Last year we made a Duck Broth Mapo riffing on this recipe and Fly By Jing did all the flavor heavy lifting.  Everything they make will make your home-cooked meals more exciting.  

2. Jacobsen Sea Salt - @jacobsensaltco

Founded in 2011, Jacobsen Salt Co. is the first company to harvest salt in the Pacific Northwest since the 1800s. Since then it has transformed from a local, small business to a nationally recognized brand as America’s leading salt maker. Harvested from the cold, pristine waters of Netarts Bay on the Oregon Coast.  We geek out on the Furikake for an Umami explosion. 

3. OmSom - @omsom

From Pepper Teigen's Krapow to Vietnamese Lemongrass Bbq Omsom delivers big, bold flavor starter packs that wake up any weeknight meal. 100% chance of not eating something boring. 


4. Seedible - @eatseedible

SEEDIBLE is a spreadable sesame butter that's nut free, gluten free, vegan, and high in plant-based protein.  Sub it into a PB & J or make a quick a smoothie bowl and your morning self will thank you.

5. Diaspora Co. - @diasporaco

Diaspora Co. was founded by 3rd gen Mumbai native, Sana Javeri Kadri in 2017 to build a more equitable and delicious spice trade that championed her heroes - Indian farmers leading the way on sustainable agriculture. From Sivathei Chillies  to Pragati Turmeric their lineup of spices will elevate anything they touch.
