Cacio E Pepe with Tellicherry Peppercorns

Cacio E Pepe with Tellicherry Peppercorns

Translated to "cheese and pepper pasta" in Italian, this authentic and impressive pasta dish has become a go-to main course for every palate, from kids to sophisticated foodies. It's luscious, satisfying, and incredibly easy, made mostly with ingredients you likely already have. The pepper is the star of this dish, we suggest using Tellicherry Black Peppercorns, one of the best peppercorn varieties in the world. It has a more complex flavor with a bit less of an initial kick than standard black peppercorns. Serve with a mixed green salad and you have dinner on the table!

As we cook through January, we are highlighting all of the whole spices collecting in our cabinets. This Taiwanese Beef Noodle soup uses a satchel of nine favorites and was a perfect dinner during Portland’s first snowy week, just days before the start of Lunar New Year.

Fennel Saffron Lobster Roll

Fennel Saffron Lobster Roll

Wouldn't be a summer in Maine without a lobster roll (every week?!). Almost anywhere you look you can find one, either chilled with mayo or warmed with butter. When we relaunched our Fennel Saffron Sea Salt, it quickly become a favorite for seafood. We switched to grinding the saffron into a fine powder to create a pink salt with cracked fennel seeds + some whole saffron threads tossed through it. Though red/pink itself, saffron turns everything around it a deep golden hue, which was really amplified when melted into butter and tossed through the chunks of lobster.
