    Question Quality cooking ingredients?

    Anyone know where we can buy these in Canada? I love Chef.com in the US, but we can't bring their goods over the border. There must be something up here in the hinterland too?

    What are you looking for P? something specific?

    There is one chef website that asks for the country...........is that the one?

    Not a Canadian, so not much help....but didn't understand what you were asking either.

    I was specifically looking for quality grains (other than wheat), oils and vinegars.

    chefshop.com is a great site for you Americans, but their shipping options page gives no option for international shipping.

    I'm going to check out our local gourmet Sobey's. But usually that's the same old, same old, with higher prices. Mostly prepackaged food and blended stuff. I just want good quality basic ingredients. Hopefully for not quite so elevated prices as we pay locally (if we can get them!) due to our isolation.

    Know any farmers? That's the best way to get the freshest stuff, and you can find out what chemicals were used to produce it, too.

    You might want to try health food stores that sell to people with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. They even sell items that are of better quality than you would get in the supermarket.

    Thanks ladies. I've since been shopping the health food stores and found what I want...for the most part. Not the choice of Chef.com, but at least it's something.
