Gourmet Seasonings

from The GodFather of Good Taste


Using maple wood, we smoke salt, pepper and garlic.  In small batches we blend those with herbs and spices.

Salt or salt free; grilling or at the table – The Salty Don has a blend to enhance the flavor of any dish.  That hint of smoke makes all the difference.  Enjoy!

Carp Customers

We have given them as Christmas presents almost every year – and as gifts when we go abroad (our friends in Provence have said that Don’s salt is better than anything they can get there and now we have to send it on demand (!).

You don’t know me, but I live in Kanata and I have been buying your Bison Smoke for a year now. It hasn’t been for me, it’s been for a California client of mine. Before I went to visit her, I asked what I could bring as a gift. She said ‘Bring some Canadian cuisine,’ so off I went to Grace in the Kitchen seeking unique foodie fare, and off I went to the U.S.

The trip & the gifts went over well. Of all the things I brought her, from Quebec cheese to BC salmon, she loved the Bison Smoke the best and requested a repeat order of it. I couldn’t quite remember the brand, but after searching the web,  I located your magic spice. I didn’t have the slightest clue where in Canada such a specialty product could come from. To my utter amazement, turning over the package, I learned that you’re right in my own backyard!!

Wanted to share this with you, to let you know that your products are cool and that the care you put into them indeed matters. It’s been helpful in my relationship with my client – and doubtless to other people who enjoy what you make.

All the best,


Corporate Customer

I use many of Don’s products personally.  So impressed that we rewarded our best customers with customized labels this past Christmas.
