SKORDO recently spent the afternoon with Derek Bissonnette of DB Photography in his Saco Mills studio learning the ins and outs of the perfect photo and potato chip. The results? You'll have to read to find out.
This dish offers a complex flavor profile with a simple preparation. Vadouvan Curry Powder, a French curry powder made with warm Indian Spices and ground shallots, is both deeply satisfying while also being light. Pair it with quality shrimp, punchy lime juice, earthy brown mustard seeds, and savory scallions, and you have a delicious, elegant meal.
If you're looking for a refreshing sweet heat cocktail for Cinco de Mayo (or any day of the week) look no further! This citrusy Paloma with a kick is the perfect 5 o'clock beverage on 5/5!
A true classic French quiche... creamy, nutty Gruyere and spinach infused with the stunning flavors of our Fore Street Shallot Blend. The blend features fragrant shallots and chives combined with the light kick of crushed green peppercorns. Incorporate your ingredients and bake -- it's that easy!
This minestrone soup comes together with one pot, in 30 minutes, uses a couple of canned ingredients, and can be adapted for any dietary needs! It’s a recipe to have on hand for snow days + sick days alike.
Stuffed Shells should be a staple dish in everyone's repertoire! They can be assembled in 20 minutes or less if you choose to use SKORDO Pizza Sauce or your favorite jarred sauce- though if you have a little time, this tomato sauce is full of flavor and the best thing to simmer on a Sunday. Make it your own!
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!
A great snack, appetizer, salad topping, or addition to a cheese board! We used white sesame seeds and finished with honey, warmed with fresh oranges and a drizzle of olive oil. This is a very flexible recipe and low cost recipe, you can cut your feta into any shapes and season with any additional herbs + spices. No added salt in this dish as feta is plenty salty on it's own.
Samosas are an Indian delicacy, and street food! The crispy triangle shells perfectly encase a fluffy potato and pea filling loaded with spices. These pack a little heat, but are often served with a cooling chutney or a curried ketchup. We made two edits to turn this traditional pastry into a quick and easy snack. 1)We used ground spices + warmed them in ghee, instead of using whole spices, toasting, and grinding. 2) We used empanada wrappers instead of making fresh dough, egg roll wrappers would work too! A samosa specific dough is pretty simple, and often uses Ajowan seeds or Caraway seeds- great to try if you have the time!
