Penzey's - A Cook's Resource

Are you looking for fresh, exotic, or bulk spices? Penzey's is one of my favorite resources. Its flagship store is located in Brookfield, Wisconsin, and when I visit, I end up spending at least an hour and entirely too much money!

Penzey's also has some excellent custom spice blends. The Cake Spice is very good, not only in baked goods, but sprinkled on top prior to baking, or on foods like French toast.

Here is a description of the Brady Street Sprinkle, which I like to use on popcorn:
Rich Romano cheese with Italian herbs and a touch of green peppercorn. Shake on garlic bread, salads and popcorn. Use 1 TB. per Cup sour cream or yogurt for vegetable/ chip dip, baked potatoes and salad dressing. Hand-mixed from: Romano cheese [made from sheep's and cow's milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes, disodium phosphate], salt, garlic, green peppercorn, sweet basil and minced parsley.
And I have used the Sandwich Sprinkle on grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast sandwiches. Master Chow was pleased. Enjoy!
