Serious Eats interview with Patty Erd, owner of The Spice House. Interesting, with the bonus of a great Julia Child story.

RE: The Spice House

Been there! Thanks to Peppi.

I thought this was interesting too Penzey's is actually my brother's company.

RE: The Spice House

Yeah, I knew she was the "Penzey's" sister. I've been there too, although Sherry and I had already left by the time Peppi and Cathy made it to the Spice House.

I took Rob there, and bought some Vulcan Fire for Elery for his popcorn.


RE: The Spice House

What a neat story. I didn't realize there was such a close association with Penzeys. I purchase from both places and my Spice House favorites are Tomato Powder, Cheddar Cheese Powder, Pure Vanilla Powder, and Bridgeport Seasoning. -Grainlady

RE: The Spice House

Interesting article, thanks. I didn't realize there was a family connection between The Spice House & Penzey's. I use Penzey's because they have a store in west Hartford, CT. I'll browse around The Spice House site & see if anything looks interesting/different for summer grilling season.

Funny store about Julia.


RE: The Spice House

Been there and Annie bought me some ginger chips. It was an amazing place. So many great looking and smelling spices! In Chicago, there is a store a couple of doors down is Old Town Oil. Also amazing. Isn't it also a "sister owned" (some relative) store?
