“Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.” — Henry David Thoreau
We at Rae&Ryan’s love to celebrate the turning of the seasons and in Southern California we joke that we only have two seasons, summer and un-summer, but we make the best of it despite our envy of climates that boast a full four seaons. Regardless of where you live and what “normal” is for your weather, we can all appreciate the seasonal food and drink that accompanies that time of year, even if the weather doesn’t want to support you at the time. Each season has so much to offer and we do our best to make the most of what it has. The fresh vegetables of Spring, the ripe fruits of Summer, the hearty roots and gourds of Fall, and the warm savory spices of Winter all bring something unique to the table.
Rae&Ryan’s Gourmet Foods will be offering herb and spice blends to compliment each season along with some recipes that we love the most during those times of year. You can always check this page to see what we have currently in production as well as what we have that is up and coming. Don’t worry that you missed out on something from a previous sesasonal release if you don’t see it currently available in the store. For purposes of quality and freshness we only make what we can sell or use in a given season and then we stop production of it, but if you want something out of season from anything in our lineup all you need to do is contact us and we would be happy to make you a batch! We don’t stock seasonal items year round, but we can always whip up a batch for you. There’s nothing fresher than made to order!
“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.” -Yoko Ono
