FATHER'S DAY GIVEAWAY - SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT & GIVEAWAY: Purpose Design

Father's Day Giveaway Item

Small Gourmet BBQ Blends Kit 
for Red Meat and Burgers



About Purpose Design .... In her Own Words:

Part designer, part foodie, part packaging addict, I design and make by night and am a domestic diva by day.

I have a fascination for food, I love to cook and eat and can host a pretty outrageous dinner party. I have a too-large cookbook collection. 

Some info on my spices: I buy all my spices from carefully sourced distributors in Montreal. I buy organic and fair trade spices whenever possible. All of my spices are the highest quality and super fresh because I buy them in small quantities. 

I make all my blends and rubs in a certified kitchen. I include ingredients lists with all blends in case of allergy issues.

Father's Day Giveaway Item - Small Gourmet BBQ Blends Kit 
for Red Meat and Burgers

Calling all grill masters! Here is the ultimate grilling kit for that BBQ fanatic in your life, especially for all the red meat lovers out there.

This lovely glossy black tube contains six 1.75 inch (48 mm) glass top containers filled with delicious savory blends to make the griller in your life drool.

This set includes: 

::Memphis BBQ Rub::

A new spin on a dry rub that originates from in and around Memphis, this mildly spiced and sweet rub is great on ribs or chicken. You can pat it on dry and baste with a smoky BBQ sauce, or just use it as is if you prefer dry ribs. Instead of the traditional brown sugar, organic golden cane sugar has been used, which prevents it from being overly sweet.

::Java Love Rub::

Chili powder and espresso may seem like an odd combination, but they lend an awesome savory flavor that enhance the flavor of a steak on the grill. Black pepper, minced onion and a touch of ceylon cinnamon round out the flavors in this unique blend. Marinate your steak for 2-4 hours in this rub and bask in the glory of its goodness.

::Southwest Chipotle Rub::

Chipotle chilies have been coming on strong in the last few years. You can now get lots of different chipotle sauces in the store, and the flavor is showing up in restaurants everywhere. Chipotle chilies have a distinctive smoky flavour and a moderate heat that is delicious on a rib eye or T-bone cut.

The chilies in this rub are the more authentic brown chipotle. Along with oregano, cut cilantro, black pepper, cumin and a dash or orange peel, this rub is delicious on beef ribs or hamburgers. For a great dip for french fries- combine 1/4 cup low fat mayonnaise with a 1/2 teaspoon of chipotle rub. Yum!

::Ancho Chili Rub::

When a ripe poblano pepper is dried, it becomes an ancho chili. Anchos are quite mild and are used in all kinds of traditional Mexican cooking. Anchos are deep red-brown and have a wonderful, sweet flavour that provide lots of personality to food without a lot of heat. 

This rub combines ancho chilies with cumin, coriander, thyme and garlic, a great combination on a rib eye steak or beef kebabs.

:: African Berbere Rub ::
Berbere is the fiery heart of Ethiopian cuisine, a hot and earthy combination when used on the grill. Try some on steaks, grilled corn, or potato wedges.

Contains: cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, ground ginger, garlic powder, fenugreek, cardamom, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, allspice.

::Café Pasilla Rub::

Pasilla chilies are also known as pasilla negro. Pasilla means "little raisin" and it gets this name from its flavour - berry and grape with a hint of licorice. Pasilla chiles are long and black, and are one of the three chiles used in traditional Mexican mole sauces. 

This rub is combined with espresso, mustard and coriander, and is great for use on steaks and burgers. The pasilla is not too spicy, but adds a lovely full flavor to red meat. Round out the meal with grilled fingerling potatoes, a crisp green salad and a full bodied Californian Zinfandel for a perfect dinner.

::::::::::::

These rubs are NOT commerical mixes, I blend them myself in small batches with my own secret recipes. 
Includes serving suggestions on the ingredients insert included with the kit.


Makes a great gift for a foodie or the adventurous griller in your life!
