The Spice House frequently hosts seminars on spices, cooking and other related topics. We hold these events in our stores, as well as other special locations.
Current & Upcoming Events
Join us for this delicious after-hours event with our favorite Pitmaster, and one of Chicago's premiere culinary figures, Gary Wiviott. We've been fans of his cooking for years, and we even carry his secret BBQ rub in our shops! Gary's second BBQ mastery book, Low & Slow 2: The Art of Barbecue, Smoke-Roasting, and Basic Curing, has just come out, and will be available for purchase if you'd like to get a copy signed.
We'll be sampling a few meaty treats from the book, including:
-Pitmaster Porchetta on mini Ciabatta with Salsa Verde
-Smoked Salmon with Lemon Garlic Drizzle, served with capers, crackers and love
-Lexington Red Slaw
-Pitmaster Pimento Cheese with smoked pimentos
Plus assorted extras and beverages.
This should be one of our most delicious booksignings ever, so if you're a BBQ fan, don't miss this chance to meet one of the top men in the field.
Come down to Central Street's annual summer shopping extravaganza. Our street in lined with unique shops including The Spice House, which will be offering special deals in a festive atmosphere.
