Have a recipe for a vegetable dip that was popular in the 90's. It calls for BONNE SAVEUR which is a spice. Can no longer find it...online or in gourmet shops. If I knew the ingredients, I could make my own. Anyone know what this is made up of? Online searches have come up with zilch!

I thought I remembered a tiny bit of french - that Bonne = good and saveur = flavor or taste. So I did a little googling, and am surprised to find that my memory is not as cloudy as it often feels:

So, I don't think that bonne saveur is the name of the spice. Rather, it is a term used before the spice name, indicating that the recipe suggested that you use a good quality spice or, possibly, fresh spices.

I noodled around a bit to see if I could find out anything. I believe it was a spice or herb mix made by French’s. French’s is now owned by McCormick. Or is it McCormack?

If you have a look at the rest of the ingredients listed for your recipe, you might be able to tell whether you want an herb or spice blend. There are any number of available products.

Or you could devise your own mix of flavors.

You could also try the McC site and search recipes, if they have any, to try to find a similar one to yours. That might give you a substitute product.

Happy hunting!

Wow...you people are surprisingly nice and have tried sooo hard to help me. Thank you!

I did have a glass jar with the words BONNE SAVEUR as the name. It was a granulated spice but can't recall who made it. Definitely wasn't one of the currently popular lines. The recipe I want to make actually says to add 3 tsp. of Bonne Saveur. I googled all spice sites and came up empty.

Can you describe the flavors it contained or was the dip connected to any particular ethnic group?

Was able to reach friend who gave me this recipe years ago. She said Beau Monde, put out by Spice Islands is the same thing. Well! Description online said: "A perfect balance of celery, onion and salt with a touch of sweetness".

Nice, nice people you are! Will have to come back when I have more time and "cook" with all of you.
