Cinnamon, cinnamon, cinnamon. There's Vietnamese, Chinese, Indonesian.... Who knew, right?

Not only that, but it's "fancy" too!

Like the sign says: Spices A - Z. If you can't find it in the retail store, you're sure to find it in Penzey's catalog where the inventory is even larger.

If you enjoy cooking and you like to keep a good stash of dry spices around, your purveyor of choice should be Penzey's. Recently, the spice trader has started opening retail locations around the country. Case in point would be two locations in the D.C. area--one in Rockville, Maryland, and one in Falls Church, Virginia. (The pictures here are from the Rockville store.)

This store has ten or 12 kinds of peppers, five kinds of cinnamon, six different grinds of sea salts, curries galore, four kinds of basil, taco seasonings, salad dressing mixes, and even hot chocolate! There's something here for every connoisseur, backyard BBQ'er, gourmet hobbyist, and stay-at-home mom/dad.

I spent $65 on eight bottles of spices and seasonings, as well as a gift pack as a birthday gift for a family member.

If you like to cook, head out to Penzey's. You'll love it!

In Rockville at 1048 Rockville Pike
and in Falls Church at 513 W. Broad Street.

Penzey's is great! it's known as the Spice House in Chicago and Evanston and I adore their "Argyle Street Asian Blend."
