We live within driving distance. You walk into the shop and are immediately overcome by all the good smells.
Over time, the thing about their herbs and spices that you come to appreciate most is how long they maintain their freshness. Even though we buy some of them (e.g., the Whole Italian Mix, Provencal Mix, Thai Mix) in relatively large packages -- 4 and 8 oz -- it remains potent for months.
We've also decided that Pendery's is our Christmas store. Family and friends get care packages of Pendery's herbs, seasonings and chile mixes. And they all look forward to it.
The place is really an extraordinary find if you're into cooking...in just about any cuisine.
