Every one of my recipe base packets is an award-winning recipe that has been in my family for generations. I come from a long line of gourmet cooks. And I love to pour my wine nightly and cook for a couple of hours. My Spitfire Gourmet packets represent a ‘go-to’ flavor that my mom, grandmother, great-grandmother, and even my great-great-grandmother relied on for many recipes. Now you can make healthy gourmet dinner like the old pros – just a lot EASIER.
I’ve been the “go to” for all my friends regarding all things cooking (and entertaining – another LOVE), so I’ve done my best to pass this passion on, by making gourmet EASY for everyone.

Each packet makes a recipe serving 4. Feed a hungry family or have awesome leftovers! Each packet also has great recipes for single dishes, so you can use packets to make large main dishes and sides for entertaining many.
You certainly can make half-recipes! The remainder will keep in a cool dry place (like your spice cupboard). Spitfire Gourmet packets have No-MSG or any other bad stuff, and are made using spices found right in the spice aisle, so they stay fresh just like any natural spice blend.
Yes, it’s totally safe to pre-mix any Spitfire Gourmet packet with oil & vinegar, and keep it on your counter for up to two weeks! (Don’t refrigerate, as the oil will coagulate.) With ¼ cup each of EVOO & and any fun Vinegar: Mix “Awesome Toss” salad dressing, and use it to toss 2 -3 large salads; Mix “Swanky Flank” marinade (add ¼ c. water) for 4 chicken breasts one night and then 4 steaks the following week; Mix “Kick & Creamy” glaze for tossing with and roasting veggies and/or potatoes.
Great idea! “Awesome Toss” is a sweet base + garlic, so will enhance most any green salad, improve a blah salad dressing, or jazz up slaws. Sprinkle it on any hearty fish before cooking or grilling, too. “Kick & Creamy” has a bouillon base and makes any creamy soup or sauce more flavorful. “Swanky Flank” is soy-based for meats and stir-fry. Both K&C and SF can add unique flavor to certain casseroles, depending on the recipes. As long as you remember the base flavor of each packet, the sky is the cooking limit! To make life even easier, email your favorite recipe, and we’ll consider converting it and adding it to our “Recipes” page!
