We saw the first flakes of snow outside the shop windows this week. We're not ready for winter, (where are our winter boots?!) but, our pantries are warming up to the idea of slow and low cooking, holiday baking and cozy snow day drinks. Here are a few of our must have items for winter warm up

The Lost Kitchen Experience

The Lost Kitchen Experience

"Erin French creates experiences"... That's what my friend Emily said the other day when we were discussing The Lost Kitchen and their ever-expanding presence in the national food scene. The Lost Kitchen dining room may be closed for the season but I was lucky enough to get a glimpse of all the current ways Erin and her team of super-women are consistently creating exquisite experiences for us Mainers and beyond.

From Powder to Paste

From Powder to Paste

So often we meet first time customers in the shops, perplexed by the world of curries and even more so confused that they've only ever used curry paste and wouldn't know how to use curry powder. Our team members love those questions and the opportunity to answer where they can, as well as guide you in the right direction to explore further-- trying something outside of your usual can be uncomfortable and discouraging!

Passport Stamps

Passport Stamps

Over the last few years (pre pandemic) my husband and I have taken two trips to Africa. The first was our honeymoon in South Africa and the second was a family trip to Morocco with my dad and his wife. This morning we were dreaming of another trip to Kenya or Tanzania or Senegal.

Blue Zone Dining: Food for a long(er) life

Blue Zone Dining: Food for a long(er) life

This month, team SKORDO is talking about the functions of food. Preparing, sharing, and enjoying a meal can be an expression of love. Or eating can make us break out in hives. It’s fuel. It’s tasty. It has the power to invigorate and the strength to humble. More recently food and cooking have inspired countless docu-series discussions and motivated more than one of our vacation itineraries. Clearly, our team is obsessed with food, but we’re waking up to the fact that we rarely look to our plates for a longer life.

Healthy Home

Healthy Home

While "Spring Cleaning" may be a more popular term, "Starting fresh in September" is just as important! This is the perfect time to catchup on all the chores that got skipped over while we were basking in the sun, and set intentions for the new season. Something were focusing on in September at SKORDO is healthy body, healthy home. When thinking through this concept, I knew my first local stop would be GoGo Refill in South Portland

Mornings at the Farmers Market

Mornings at the Farmers Market

The farmers market is the epitome of a community collaboration. Each Wednesday + Sunday, 30+ farms are lined up throughout Deering Oaks park right here in Portland, Maine. On top of the insanely bountiful variety of produce this brings, its also gathering hundreds of families, a handful of musicians and artists with their own stands, local chefs, and so many dogs!

Let's hear it for the (Weck) Jar!

Let's hear it for the (Weck) Jar!

What are the hardest working tools in your kitchen? Peak beyond the obvious (knives and cutting boards) and consider the container. Food storage, dressing shaker, vase, carafe, gift wrapping, incense holder, wine glass, and marinade-r. In these days of celebrating ‘doing it all’ and multi-hyphenate hoopla, it’s time to honor the true gadget G.O.A.T., the Weck Jar.
