Old Bay® is a blend of 18 spices invented by Gustav Brunn, a German refugee who came to Maryland in 1939. Named after a ship line on the Chesapeake Bay, the spice grew in popularity during the second half of the 20th century. The recipe today is the same as it was over 75 years ago. Any restaurant in Maryland, especially those near the Chesapeake Bay, will have the seasoning, and it’s a must for your steamed crabs and crabcakes.
