This Is TASTE 310: Burlap & Barrel

Today on the show we welcome in Ethan Frisch and Ori Zohar, the co-founders of Burlap & Barrel, a well-regarded spice company that may play a starring role in your kitchen. We wanted to have these guys in to talk about the early days of their company, and how both left successful careers in restaurant cooking and advertising to launch their company. We also find out about their meticulous approach to sourcing the Guatemalan cardamom and Turkish black Urfa chili, and dig into more spices they think we should be cooking with. We hope you enjoy this conversation.

Also on the show, Brad Metzger discusses with Matt some of the big themes that arose during the latest LA Chef Conference.
