Foundation. Flavor. Food.
Dill Seed, botanical name Anethum graveolens, is an annual herb in the celery family Apiaceae. Other members of this family include carrots and parsley. Dill seed is also known as American dill, dilly, European dill and seed dill. Dill Seed is not technically a seed, but the flat, oval, dark brown whole fruits of the herb. Dill Weed refers to the leaf and stem of the plant.
The dill plant is one of those rare plants that produces both an herb and a spice, others include Coriander, with the fruit known as Coriander and the leaves as Cilantro, and Fenugreek with the fruit known as Fenugreek Seeds and the leaves as Fenugreek Leaves. Although part of the same plant, dill seed and dill weed have such different flavor profiles that chefs would never substitute one for the other!
In September of 2019 our Chef/Owner, David Humphrey, started A&H Provisions to help bring a local option for spices to the Atlanta, Georgia area. An option that will give local residents the ability to have a spice merchant help them make the right choices when purchasing their spices. We will source our product so as to provide you with freshest product possible.
Chef David has been in the culinary industry for over 25 years. His first job was at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. After that he was hooked on the industry. He would continue to work with food whether it was in the back or front of house, in positions from entry level to managerial.
