About Épices de Cru
Épices de Cru began in 1982 as a catering partnership between Philippe and Ethné de Vienne. Their mission was a kind of “cooking pot anthropology:” learning the secrets of family cooking around the world and applying these techniques to the needs of hungry Montrealers. The secret, they learned, was spices. Over the last two decades, Philippe and Ethné have searched for the world’s best spices, accompanied by their children, Marika and Arik. The de Viennes believe in direct sourcing spices: visiting growing regions, spending time with growers, and developing personal relationships that last decades. In 2004, they officially opened their first spice shop in Montreal’s fantastic Jean Talon market– it’s since become a mecca for foodies from all over the world. I first visited in 2008 and have been buying and using their spices on a regular basis ever since that first exciting visit. They steadfastly maintain that they do nothing original, only facilitating the exchange of culinary common sense from one place to another. But, what they do is simply quite brilliant - by providing us with the finest quality ingredients, and their superb spice mixes, we can all experiment with unusual spices and recreate delicious recipes from around the world.
Skeppshult was founded in 1906 by C.E. Andersson. Known for their robust, high quality cast-iron products. Each item is made by hand, pouring molten iron into special moulds that use very fine sand from Lake Vättern close to their factory in Sweden. The sand has been compressed under several tons of pressure making it capable of withstanding the extremely high temperature of the hot cast-iron as it's poured into their induction furnaces. Once cooled, the mould is separated and the product is left to cool before further work is carried out honing and finessing their shape. Then, they are seasoned with local rapeeseed from Osterlen which both protects the cast-iron from external damage and helps to give it it's natural non-stick property. The pure cast-iron ensures effective heat distribution and efficient energy usage, making all Skeppshult products some of the most eco-friendly cookware to use in your kitchen.
Do not wash in the dishwasher, simply clean by hand with a brush and wipe dry with kitchen paper and occasionally rub lightly with a little rapeseed or vegetable oil.
Every item made by Skeppshult has a 25 year guarantee.
