If Donnie Ferneau could bottle whatever it is that he does to food that makes it so darn yummy, he could be a millionaire. Oh wait… he has bottled it! Ferneau Seasoning Signature Blend is a special seasoning developed by Donnie Ferneau, himself, and is now available for the bargain price of only $5.50! Supposedly, you can use the seasoning on anything from chicken and pork to steak and roasts. Donnie says that they use it on everything (even salads!) at his restaurant, Ferneau, in Hillcrest. Because he uses all of the good stuff like Turkish oregano and Hungarian paprika, and none of the bad stuff like sugar and MSG, Ferneau’s Seasoning stands apart from all its supermarket competitors. Not to mention the fact that it is crafted by one of Arkansas’s own favorite chefs. Just one more reason to be proud of Arkansas, folks.
Donnie’s proud and dutiful father, Don Ferneau Sr. is up at the crack of dawn on Tuesdays and Saturdays selling his son’s creation at the Farmer’s Market in Little Rock. When you go, buy that man a cup of coffee! He’s probably been up since 4:00 am and he deserves it!
