Local Maine Menus | SKORDO Ingredients

Local Maine Menus | SKORDO Ingredients

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:

Buzz Coffee

We welcome Corey in the shop anytime, with great coffee comes great inspiration and ideas! Corey started experimenting with our Black Dutch Cocoa and Vanilla Extract Powder, and Vanilla Bean Paste recently in his Mocha and occasionally offers a Lavender Latte special with our French Lavender. All of his syrups are now made in house! Started as a push cart, the Buzz shop is adorable and now just a skip and a jump up Exchange St!

     .         

 

Bull Feeneys

After closing in 2020, Bull Feeney’s has finally opened back up this August, with our Maple Salmon Rub, Maine Blueberry Pork Rub, Berbere, SKORDO Steak Seasoning, and Mediterranean Fish Seasoning in their kitchen. Bull Feeneys is an authentic Irish Pub & Restaurant right across the street from us on Fore St.

                   

 

Higher Grounds

We love seeing the Higher Ground team stop by to pick up none other than our Vanilla Extract! Higher Grounds serves up a delicious collection of iced + hot coffee,  alongside  a collection of cannabis products right on Wharf St.

 

 

Cheese Louise

Chef Maria hustles across the way to see us on the regular, and often brings a trail of bacon aroma behind her (no complaints here!). You can find taste a combination of our Memphis Barbecue Rub and Chipotle Spice Rub making up their Yes Porkin’ Way sandwich, our Madras Curry Powder on their Keep Calm and Curry On sandwich, and our Vanilla Extract in both their delightful brownies + cookies for dessert! Cheese Louise has another two locations in New Hampshire and food trucks for catering. Their Instagram is always looking delicious, linked here.

   

 

Maine Maple Creemee Co

Kelley, one of our Sales Associates in our Old Port shop, shared that Maine Maple Co has made a granola with our Ginger Sea Salt- genius! Owner/Founder Hannah highlights Maine Maple and other seasonal flavors in her Creemees on her mobile truck across Southern Maine. “Creemee” being a native Vermont term for a richer, creamier soft serve ice cream (arguably made with higher quality ingredients). You can typically catch her around the Eastern Promenade in Portland Thursday-Sunday, though it’s best to check Instagram for active updates.

Blue Zone Dining: Food for a long(er) life-SKORDO Kitchen Blog

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.

Middle Eastern Mezze

Hellooo new SKORDO set - this Middle Eastern compilation may be just the thing to expand your palette!

A brush of Syrian Za’atar on the flatbread, a Baharat marinade on the vegetables, a Dukkah crust on the Halloumi, and an Advieh seasoned broth for the rice. These flavors, combined with the various textures, creates a meal that is begging to be shared with your loved ones. Thankful to have my SKORDO blends to help me travel to different cultures, while still staying pandemic safe in my home kitchen!

Celebrate with Seafood

Celebrate with Seafood

A few nights back I brought home two pounds of mussels and two pounds of tuna steaks for a celebratory dinner. My husband and I had just put a house under contract earlier that morning (fingers crossed!) and our good friends had just listed theirs in anticipation for a move up the coast. We figured a nice seafood spread was the perfect way to round out the day. Baked sweet potato fries, a hearty loaf of bread and a salad topped with citrus complimented the fish and we made sure the white wine was flowing.

Mixology for You and Me.

Mixology for You and Me.

Sipping a made-just-for-you drink is the perfect punctuation to a busy week. These days many of us are missing the colorful creations of talented mixologists and settling for mediocre or downright boring end of day drinks. Well, just like the sourdough you’ve perfected over the last few weeks, now’s the time to master the art of handcrafted cocktails.
