One of the most exciting parts about moving to a new city is discovering the shops and restaurants! I was so happy to find Stockholms Aeter & Essencefabrik, a family owned and run spice shop specializing in everything that has to do with seasoning: spices, spice mixes, essential oils, essences for baking – you name it! Opened in 1889, you can’t help but feel like you’ve walked into history!
From their website:
Much has changed in Stockholm since then, but the environment and the interior of the “Spice Shop” have been fully preserved. The assortment of spices has been constantly evolving. We now have about 300 different spices, of which about 60 are mixtures. The Essence factory is Sweden’s oldest company in the industry and has remained a family business that is today run by the fourth generation.
You can buy the spices by weight and now my kitchen is full of tiny spice bags!
