Plump Chef, Peter Christenson originally created his very own mix of spices to be used in recipes served to his customers. Friends, relatives (close and not-so-close), co-workers and even patrons requested “just a little in a baggie” to take home. Many of them suggested he bottle and sell it — A Christmas gift of a box of bottles and some homemade labels started the process and the rest is history!!  Today Plump Chef spices are sold in stores, boutiques, supermarkets, specialty meat shops and fine restaurants throughout the entire Midwest.
