Penzeys Spices

EatLA-1675

WHY Kala jeera (black cumin) and French four spice, and knowledgeable staffers who can tell you what to do with them.

WHAT This Wisconsin-based chain is the Grand Cru of spice shops. At both the newer Santa Monica branch and in Torrance, you’ll find a dizzying selection of chile powder, cinnamon and pepper blends. The cute retro look in the baking area is a candyland of Indonesian and Vietnamese cinnamon, crystallized and powdered gingers and such hard-to-find specialty ingredients as mahlab (sour cherry pits).

WHO Farmers’ market shoppers, home bakers, chefs and pastry chefs.

    I ADORE Penzeys and am so happy to see them getting a shout out.

    Yes they have hard to find stuff but I have to say, their “normal” stuff is so good, don’t’ overlook it. Their natural cocoa (for baking) is so rich, i give bags of it as gifts. It’s that good and, very well priced.
