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
The history of the spice trade reveals fascinating tales of piracy, adventures, and wars waged to control the burgeoning industry. Exotic myths arose to explain the high prices of spice. Join Patty and Tom Erd, owners of The Spice House, as they share historical facts, anecdotes, and entertaining tales of derring-do. You'll also get to take home a precious stash of spices.
