We dont usually have brandy or beer in our house so its super convenient to have Rave Review Culinary Spirits in the house. I used the Culinary Hops instead of beer in a buffalo chicken chili recipe last weekend & it was SO tasty! I usually just end up skipping the beer or liquor in recipes but now I know what Im missing. Adding the Culinary Hops to my chili made the best batch ever! 

Rave Review! Original Culinary Spirits™ is the first line of spirits specifically crafted for cooking.  The perfect gift for the chef or foodie in your life.  Designed BY chefs for the home chef Rave Review Spirits are a little lower in alcohol to preserve the flavor and remove the bite of alcohol. Rave Review spirits hold their flavor while cooking and heating better than your typical spirit. Rave Review offers Culinary Blended Bourbon, Culinary Hops, and Culinary Brandy for all your cooking needs.

Below are some of my avorite recipes that will get 2014 off to a yummy start!
