Aaron Isaacson is the real life “MR” behind Mr. Recipe®. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, he long ago traded in Chef Whites and hot kitchens in New York City in favor of Jungle Tan and even hotter climates in far away lands to search for the world’s finest flavor ingredients. With his signature mustache, encyclopedic knowledge of flavor, pitch perfect palate and larger than life personality, this modern day “Indiana Jones of Spices” traverses the globe to source the highest grade spices and herbs that the earth has to offer. From the sun kissed hillsides of Sicily... to the tropical forests of Madagascar... to the fragrant mountain plantations of Tahiti, his story is one of passion, adventure and flavor. Quietly working behind the scenes for over 20 years as the best kept secret of the culinary elite, this “one-man spice emporium” was finally exposed in 2007 as “The Spice Guru to the Chefs” by New York magazine. He is revered by those in the know as the leading authority and supplier of the ultimate flavor experience.
