Chicken Soup Base
Chicken Taco Seasoning
Sicilian Salad Seasoning
Garden Salad Seasoning
I can't wait to get my order :)
Oh and they were having a contest to see where they would open their next store and Boston won. That made my day!
What have you bought from Penzeys and did you like it or not?
I would like everyone to meditate on the philosophy of cooking for a moment. Now, isn't using premixed spices sort of like using cake mix? The cook has lost control by giving it to a manufacturer. When that manufacturer goes out of business, it will no longer be possible for the cook to duplicate the recipe. The recipe cannot be used by anyone who does not have access to the manufacturer's mix. Cooking is about control. If not, why not just eat at a restaurant?
