Almost Beau Monde Seasoning Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
I have been searching for beaumonde seasoning for years now since I can no longer find it locally, and don't have the means to buy online (i.e. credit card) and this is the same recipe I have found everywhere for it with the exception of one which did not include the bay leaf and one other ingredient.

This was much like the beau monde seasoning my grandma used to use. It brought back fond memories--Thank you!

I added a teaspoon of ground cloves and allspice instead of the tablespoons called for, because they are the strongest spices. This mix is definitely great and woke up my palate! TASTY! Better than store bought. Added it to Bloody Marys and deviled eggs- NICE! Thank you so much for sharing!

This IS a Beau Monde, or Beautiful World blend of spices, and a good one. I am used to a slightly mellower, redder version and I figured out that an added tablespoon of Hungarian paprika to this recipe balances the whole thing out to my liking. Try it. If you are used to the Spice Island version be warned this recipe is nothing like that "blend" of salt, sugar(dextrose),onion and celery seed(and silicone dioxide, a flavorless mineral meant to prevent caking). But comparing that version to the real thing is like comparing Taco Bell hot sauce to a real Mexican salsa. Just the truth of the matter. I love this on salmon and red meat.

While this may be delicious in certain uses, if you are looking for the Spice Islands version of Beau Monde, this is not what you want. Spice Islands' own website states their seasoning is a blend of salt, celery and onion. I am giving this a 3 because it was the only way I could leave a review to let people know this, and, as I said, it may indeed be good for some things.

I really don't like this seasoning combo and I had to buy some expensive spices to make it. Won't do again.

I didn't have the celery seed or mace, perhaps that what did it, but the cloves overpowered everything. Be careful.

Wish I'd read this first. I agree that all you can taste is the overpowering chives! I had some Beau Monde purchased from Bulk Barn in Canada, but they don't sell it anymore. It was fabulous. Thankfully I have a tbsp of the original to compare the smell to. This was nowhere near it!
