It’s interesting to think about how the modern subscription services trend — candy, snacks, even razors — isn’t all that different from the (fill in the blank)-of-the-month clubs that initially gained popularity in the specialty food and wine business.

This month, Savory Spice Shop launched a monthly spice club that will feature some of the store’s seasoning mixes, spices or herbs, as well as a recipe for how to use them.

A sample month might include crushed aleppo chilies, a pinchito spice blend inspired by the flavors of southern Spain and a recipe for grilled meat and vegetable skewers with a yogurt chili lime dipping sauce. The following month, you might get the Jamaican Bajan seasoning mix, smoked sweet paprika and a recipe for Lowcountry shrimp and rice. A six-month subscription costs $49, but you can also buy a 12-month membership or one for a year that also includes the store’s cookbook and 10 additional seasonings. To find out more about the club, go to savoryspiceshop.com/spiceclub.

Instead of having the spices shipped to your house, you could also buy them directly from the Austin store in the Arboretum, which sometimes hosts classes and other events. This weekend, Bill Carlile will be offering knife sharpening services.
