Michael Stephens ’97 launches gourmet seasoning

1997 stephens, slavoBrophy alumnus Michael Stephens ’97 launched his own brand blended spices to create Slavo Salt. After leaving Brophy, Michael attended Texas Christian University, graduating with degrees in sociology and business before moving on to get his culinary degree from the California Culinary Academy.
During his 10-year tenure as a chef, Michael developed his special mix of seasonings which would later become Slavo Salt. This special blend of fresh garlic, salt and black peppercorns is perfect for both the seasoned chef and novice cook alike enhancing the natural flavors of meats, veggies, eggs and even Bloody Mary’s.
When it was time to name the product the answer was simple – Slavo, the nickname he picked up while attending Brophy. “There’s no good story behind the name unfortunately” Stephens says “it just stuck with me and always reminds me of my roots in Phoenix and at Brophy.” Slavo Salt is based right here in the Valley and available at local retailers as well as SlavoSalt.com. Visit their website and Facebook page for retail locations, great recipes and cooking tips too!
