Introducing: Barton Seaver x SKORDO Wine Pairing Sea Salts.
We are thrilled to launch six new sea salt blends, each handcrafted to pair with the world’s most beloved wines. From the kitchen of Barton Seaver, esteemed chef and author-- each blend is designed to deliciously season proteins, vegetables, legumes, and grains while complementing the flavor of each wine varietal. Dive into each new blend and explore recipes to go with them.
Being in Portland, Maine- we're surrounded by new and exciting restaurants, food trucks, and pop up events constantly! Being on Fore Street specifically, we're lucky to have a handful of those local food businesses stop by regularly to pickup some ingredients for their menu.
Here’s some of our favorites...
We spent the holiday season of 2021 immersed in Baking It on Peacock. The humor of Maya Rudolph and Andy Samberg mixed with sassy grandmothers and an excellent cast of home cooks created the perfect sweet escape. Niyati Nakra and Abhi Chhabra quickly stood out from the crowd thanks to their dedication to gluten free bakes, supportive and playful approach to cooking and fearless use of flavors. After the show aired, Niyati and Abhi reached out to SKORDO. We're thrilled to share a recipe from their home kitchen and an interview with these accomplished home cooks. Enjoy!
We're excited to announce SKORDO ingredients will be used on the Food Network's new series, The Julia Child Challenge! Eight home cooks will compete to win the ultimate Julia Child prize: an all-expense paid three-month cooking course at Le Cordon Bleu.
Team SKORDO first learned about Vena's Fizz House in 2016. We were busy opening our Old Port store and couldn't help but notice the vibrant cocktail and mocktail shop down the street. The combination of vintage glassware, impeccably built ingredients and delicious drinks had us making up any excuse to visit Vena's.
Today, the Vena's Fizz House team is focused on their line of sippers, bitters, infused sugar cubes, and a Maine inspired syrup. You can find their products in specialty food shops or purchase directly on their website. They are also preparing to open a new retail and bar location in Portland with enough space to host events and classes.
Steve, one of Vena's founders, was kind enough to answer our questions and passed along a couple home bar tips and tricks. Enjoy!
Well this is exciting! This holiday season, SKORDO ingredients will be used on Baking It, a baking competition show hosted by Maya Rudolph and Andy Samberg on Peacock TV.
