Glad you made it to Le Sanctuaire. They are an incredible resource for chefs, cooks and, well people.

It is quite unfortunate that with this resource in your backyard, perception and rumor kept you away for so long.

As you have now discovered,Le Sanctuaire sells ingredients.

Last time I read cornstarch and flour were just powders, not crazy ones used in the kitchen.

Spices, vinegars and oils that are unknown or not used can seem daunting until they become part of our pantry.

And as you are a sensualist ingredients like gellan, methylcellulose and carrageenan should become part of your pantry as they allow for the creation of sensual textures without the dilution of flavor. Similarly, if we are talking of the senses, altering perception and appearance are both essential and exciting in creating deliciousness.

And now for the imagination...what is possible with a new resource of ingredients. It is, as you joyously describe, like finding a hidden treasure.

As cooks we must continue to remember that as soon as we build walls we forget to look over them.

Oh, you had to *link*, didn't you? I'm in trouble now...

and where else can you look at those beAuTiFul European cookbooks!!! I always meet interesting people there too.

Yes, Jing and Alex will take care of you as well. Very detail oriented people who are driven on specifics as you are. Glad you have been Le Sanctuaired!
