Dr. P


The Prime Ingredient Original Mediterranean Spice Blend pays honor to my mom; the original chef of the family.  She blended her spices in our North Hollywood, CA kitchen for our everyday meals.  I loved the scents and flavors so much growing up, I knew that I had to share this with the world.  I'm glad to give a little of my Lebanese culture from My Mom to you.  Enjoy.
