Oaktown Spice Shop; Oakland, CA

This charming spice shop was the first of its kind to open in Oakland. Co-owner John Beaver’s first job was at the Spice House in Milwaukee, where he learned to grind and blend spices at a young age. One of Oaktown’s most popular blends, Moroccan Fish Tagine, is composed of 14 spices including paprika, ancho chile, lemon zest and cassia cinnamon; Beaver recommends sprinkling it directly on fish or chicken before roasting.
