If you're counting items like achiote paste, frankincense tears and pure wasabi powder among your grocery list for the week, you may already be acquainted with the one-stop seasoning mecca that is Savory Spice Shop. Whether you're a regular or yet to be initiated, this Saturday's grand opening offers a full day of activities to satisfy the creative culinary soul.
Owners Amy and Scott MacCabe are kicking the day off at 9 a.m. The early bird gets the worm, or in this case, a free goodie bag of spices. Wendy Cardais of Cardais Gourmet Specialty Gift Foods will provide an assortment of delectable deserts and pastries. Personal Chef Dawn Maloney will serve up a curry demonstration from 10 a.m.-12 p.m., whipping up coconut curry chicken and herbal asparagus seasoned with Berbere (drool.)
The afternoon has Simplicity, a local professional organizing company, slated to share tips and best practices on how to clear out your old spices and organize the perfect spice cabinet to fit your lifestyle. If cleaning out the clutter ranks as high a priority for you this new year as it does for me, you won't want to miss this useful demonstration.
Saturday also marks the beginning of the Cash in your Cupboard promotion, offering customers who bring in competing spice containers $1 off a bottle of Savory Spice Shop's herbs, spices or blends.

Charlotte has never tried to preserve much of it's history. Uptown is a perfect example…
Updating happens, I get it... But I will say I understand where you are coming…
As long as the chicken recipe hasn't changed I think I'm good with it.
