Red Stick Spice Company

Spices are the foundation of South Louisiana cuisine and spices are what we’re all about at Red Stick Spice Company. From Cajun cooking to creole to our own take on American dining, food is a way of life in Louisiana—and for Red Stick. Our favorite memories come from a foodie’s dream: The spicy smells of fresh Louisiana shrimp frying up golden brown, or picking up freshly smoked pork sausage for grandpa’s secret jambalaya recipe. Whatever whets our appetite, Red Stick Spice Co. knows food.

Being Louisiana born and raised makes everyone here a believer that home starts with a family and ends with a kitchen. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know the difference between Cajun and creole cooking—though you’ll find out if you mention it to a native. It doesn’t matter if you’re making tacos or a six-course meal. RedStickSpice.com’s online shop carries the same great South Louisiana spices, herbs, seasonings, rubs, and spice blends that Red Stick’s retail shop is famous for, along with a variety of spices and other selections from around the world.

Freshness First

What sets us apart from other spice companies is our philosophy on freshness. We capture the unique taste of South Louisiana by starting with South Louisiana. That’s why we source our gourmet spices from local farmers and chefs for the absolute best our region has to offer and hand-blend them in-house.

And because so much of those Cajun and creole flavors were built on what folks brought with them from other parts of the world, we carry a wide variety of spices from around the globe so you can make your own mark on the gourmet scene.

Whatever you’re cooking, stock your pantry with the finest, freshest spices and seasonings our store has to offer. And whenever you’re cooking, put those quality ingredients to use.

We also carry smoked and unsmoked gourmet sea salts, along with extracts, mixes, and our exclusive line of extra virgin olive oils made from the Arbequina olive grown on family farms in California. Whatever you need for your kitchen and whatever way your tastes run, you’ll find it at Red Stick Spice Co.

Not a chef? Not a problem!

If you need new recipe ideas from the healthy to the hearty, you’ll be pleased to know that we’re no ordinary spice trader. Our owner, Anne Milneck, is a professional chef who’s happy to share her recipes—and so are our customers. You’ll find authentic Louisiana recipes, from the classics to ones just making their way onto the South Louisiana food scene, like the wildly popular Meaux Betta Redfish recipe, made with Red Stick’s exclusive in-house Meaux Betta blend. And don’t think Louisianans don’t appreciate the rest of the food world. You can also find new twists on classic American fare, like our apple pie cream cheese pastry recipe.

Everything you need to get cooking is right here in our online shop, from the ingredients to the same care, advice, and expertise our customers are used to in person. If you’re in Baton Rouge, drop by our retail location at 7970 Jefferson Hwy., Suite G. Or give us a call at 225-930-9967—we’ll be happy to help with anything from general inquiries to recommendations for spice selection.

New Recipes from Our Blog

Creole Bolognese
May 18, 2015

We love a long-simmered bolognese. This sauce is definitely worth the time it takes to make it. A bolognese starts with fairly humble ingredients: ground meat, a few vegetables and canned tomatoes. It's the long cooking process that helps bring out the rich, meaty goodness. Our Creole Italian Blend is a nice compliment to this sauce bringing sweet basil and bit of heat into play.

Quiche Lorraine with Tasso
May 04, 2015

We love quiche. It's perfect in any season. This baked egg custard can serve as a last-minute weeknight supper or the fancy centerpiece at a Sunday brunch. Quiche is almost foolproof and takes to just about any ingredients. Bake it in advance, and it's just as good at room temp. You can't go wrong! This quiche makes use of tasso--a long-smoked, highly spiced Cajun meat. But any smoked sausage or bacon will work, too.

Couscous Salad with Smoked Paprika
May 04, 2015

In terms of customer favorites in the store, Smoked Hot Paprika is definitely a frontrunner. So many customers have commented that they were unsure of how they would use it. But once they got it home, they can't figure out how they DON'T use it! It's great as a rub for chicken or salmon. It's a must in a southwestern soup or stew. And it's excellent in this dish!
