Here’s the dirty little secret behind Old Bay spice blend…
Philippe de Vienne, co-founder of Épices de Cru told me, “The East Coast Blend is what the original Old Bay spice blend would have tasted like back in the ‘30s.” The original blend was “invented” by a Jewish immigrant, Gustav Brunn, who escaped Nazi Germany and came to the US in 1939. He named his blend for the Old Bay Line, a passenger ship that worked the Chesapeake Bay. Shortly after arriving, Brunn got a job at McCormick spice company, but, Brunn claimed, he was quickly fired when the company discovered he was Jewish. Ironically, McCormick bought Old Bay in 1990.
