Like to cook at home? Read This
 
UPS came today ;) got my penzeys goodies. PENZEYS Spices Home Page


If you guys ever cook at home, and are serious about cooking..i cant reccomend this place enough.


You can save a phenomenal amount of money and get a higher grade of product at the same time. Best spices.


These peppercorns for instance - this is the stuff columbus came looking for. They are no joke.

Sarawaks and Telicherrys are excellent. At my grocer 4.5oz of tellicherrys costs like 8 dollars.


On this site you can get 8oz of tellicherrys for 6.50.
thats just for black peppercorns...same goes for many of their spices(excellent value)


Other standout items are their Paprika, Cinnamon, and Saffron...they have amazing multiple varieties of these..including the best.


Overall best place to buy spices if you enjoy cooking whatsoever. Had nothing but good experiences with them.

Yep Penzys is awesome!!! Funny that you mention them. I was just chatting with a good friend of mine a few minutes ago. For her wedding I got her a whole pile of stuff from Penzys. Well she just signed up for a cooking class and the teacher was doing a class on spices. She recommended that her students all become very familiar with Penzys as they are the best quality and value around.

Leg I love their peppercorns. They have so much flavor!

Oh man, their peppercorns are amazing.

I seriously can't imagine cooking carbonara or pepper-crusted filet mignon without them.

Wow!

Next time you place an order leg, made sure you get some of the Smoked Spanish Paprika. The stuff is mind blowing.

Just got my latest Penzey's order today. I have been buying ALL of my spices through Penzey's for 12 years. Far superior to the grocery store stuff. If you think their prices are low now - you should of seen them just a few years ago. I place order's about 4 times a year. Would LOVE to have a Penzey's in my town. The storefronts offer are an amazing experience.

man... a storefront would be crazy.

Online is mindblowing enough. I cant imagine walking through there.

lol, i would blow so much money.

Cool. I have never heard of them.
So their spices are cheaper than the store and shipping doesn't kill you? I wouldn't say I'm "serious" about cooking, but I can't even find smoked paparika at my usual store. I'll do my spice shopping with them if they are that much better. And it sounds like they are.

Mylegsbig 10-24-2007 02:52 PM

the spices are cheaper.

But more than that, the spices are of much higher QUALITY.

It's so worth it dude.

See for yourself. There is not reason to ever buy supermarket low quality spices again.
