From the people
"Highly recommend! As a recipe developer, cookbook author, and food stylist, I am always on the hunt for excellent-quality ingredients and I can always depend on SKORDO to have what I am looking for. I'm inspired by their international spice selections and original blends as well as their top-notch everyday spices."
My partner and I love to cook (and obviously eat) together, and we have SKORDO to thank for some of our all-time favorite meals. We we can always find helpful and passionate people working at the store who answer questions and suggest awesome cooking adventures.
It's really hard to say why I love Skordo. Lately I have really been into curry. The Green Curry and the Malay curry are favorites. With grilling season here, I really love the Korean grilling spice on Tuna steaks and the Maple Salmon rub on salmon filets. Looking forward to more exploratory cooking with other spices and blends.
Love my test tube rack (and the spices in them!)! Great decorative and functional piece. Constantly getting compliments!
Just received your personal handwritten note regarding our recent purchase. What a classy touch. My wife and I discovered your store on our first time visit to Portland in January. We look forward to our next visit but are grateful that we can order online. We added the seafood and steaks package because we were so happy with the Grillin' spices. Looking forward to additional purchases
I just wanted to take a minute and say "Thank You" to the entire team at SKORDO for help with a group of gifts that I needed to send to folks scattered across the country. I was unsure of exactly what I wanted to send and the SKORDO team not only took the time to understand what people would like, but put together a thoughtful package of options from which to choose. They made the process so easy and so delightful. The best part was that everyone LOVED their gifts. I could not have chosen a better way to get gifts to a very diverse group of people. Thanks again SKORDO!
Skordo is the ONLY place I buy my spices. I stumbled upon them in their Portland location, and have been hooked ever since. Family owned and operated, freshly grounded spices that burst with flavor, these spices make me feel like a professional chef in the kitchen! 100% recommend!
LOVE LOVE LOVE your recipes, your products, your staff!!! Thank you for being you
Bought the Tagine recipe packet when I was in Maine this summer! OMG! My husband and I couldn’t believe it - probably one of the best dishes we ever had! Hooked on SKORDO.
I received my package with my order. I'm excited to try out new recipes with these new spices. We fell in love with your store in Maine on a vacation trip two years ago. We got a few spices to try out and loved them. Thank you again.
Ideal blend? A blend that can go on everything. Ideal bread? Bread you can serve with everything. With this recipe, you can have a fluffy, seeded white bread in just about 3 hours (or quicker with a mixer!). I went on to turn this into a yummy Egg Salad Sandwich, a BLT, crostinis for a cheese platter, and some croutons with the ends! Only regret? Not making another loaf.
I loved my mom's egg salad growing up, but once I became responsible for peeling my own eggs, I stopped loving the salad. Recently I saw this "hard-boiled egg hack" and I just had to try it myself! This shortcut, plus the spicy tang of Kitchen Garden Farm's Sriracha Chili Sauce, made egg salad feel like a treat again. Hope you enjoy!
This chowder was a perfect bowl of summer and comes together in about 30 minutes! Largely influenced by Eventide's cookbook, I slimmed down the recipe to make just 2 servings, introduced SKORDO Lemon Herb Fish Seasoning to it, I used Oceans Balance Dried Kombu in place of a full piece. Without any heavy roux, this is a lighter chowder that's completely gluten-free!
