Does anyone have a favorite spice store in the city? I know there's one in RTM, and one in the Italian Market, and there's a Penzey's in Chestnut Hill. Just wondering which one people liked.
I've been watching alot of Cooking Channel shows while...well...cooking on the weekend. (I cook a bunch of stuff to last us during the week.) On a recent episode of Good Eats, Alton said that buying spices whole instead of already ground actually helps them last longer. He uses an old coffee grinder to grind small amounts for each meal. We just happen to have an old coffee grinder that could be used for just such a duty.
So...opinions on spice stores?
