Flavor in Lee’s Summit

Historic downtown Lee’s Summit got a little spicier with the opening of Flavor (318 Southwest Main St.), a spice shop and specialty market offering a wide array of spices, both international and domestic; whole and ground; and dried and fresh. In other words, it’s got pretty much every seasoning you could need to kick your food up a notch. The shop also carries local, small batch sauces and marinades, dried mushrooms and chilies, a variety of oils and vinegars and spunky kitchen accoutrements (because whole spices taste just a little better when you grind them yourself with a mortar and pestle). Owner Amy Keith also hopes to add a demonstration kitchen where she can feature cooking classes and demonstrations, bringing flavor full circle.
