Matt About Town: Old Bay and Jimmy’s Famous Seafood: Baltimore’s spiciest collaboration

Matt About Town: Old Bay butter spices up Maryland's culinary scene

It’s one of the hottest collaborations of the season featuring a famous Maryland spice.

In today’s edition of “Matt About Town,” WTOP’s Matt Kaufax heads up to Baltimore — to try some Old Bay flavors soon to be hitting stores near you!

The new Old Bay butters, sauces, dips and more, which only dropped within the past month and are still making their way to be more widely available at Maryland grocery stores, are courtesy of a unique collaboration.

Owners of Baltimore restaurant Jimmy’s Famous Seafood, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, said they taste-tested around 300 different products, in partnership with McCormick Spice company, to perfect their new flavors.

Come along with Matt as he embarks on a culinary journey: Maryland-style.
