Chef François classic seasoning was originally designed for personal consumption, and at the request of many friends and family the decision was made to produce it in bulk. At first ten kilos were mixed at one time being divided into little bags for those that wanted to take the taste home. Soon requests were coming in from friends of friends that also wanted this exquisite taste for their own kitchen. This led to the bottle and labeling ‘Chef François Classic Seasoning’.
