It was a stoke of genius to put Penzey's in Grand Central - mecca of stress. Metro North commuters, you owe it to yourselves to step in daily, inhale deeply, and take the edge off the day! I discovered Penzeys Spice catalog in 1999 when I started cooking ethnic cuisines, but even non-foodies will appreciate how super-fresh spices elevate everyday meals to a whole new level. Online shopping is great, but nothing compares to the sensory experience of one of their retail stores, where you can smell and taste for yourself how flavorful different varieties of the same spice can be - go now, you won't regret it.
