Chef, where DOES a regular person acquire these individual packets of condiments in bulk? I've wanted to have a stash of 1/2 and 1/2 cream on the boat for years but never seem to be able to find the suppliers of these things. Do you have to own a restaurant and have a Sysco account or can the rest of us get them somewhere?

Moo-Moo UHT creamer in the little single serving plastic cups is available in 20 and 50 (I think) packages at most large supermarkets in the US. You can get even bigger packages at warehouse stores like Sam's Club and Costco.

The warehouse stores carry the little packets of mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, and relish as well if you are so inclined.

I just boat a bunch at the Giant in Annapolis for my trip to BVI next week.

Med, look for "restaurant supply" in the yellow pages. Assuming you can still find a yellow pages. A lot of the wholesale places will sell anything to anyone who comes in with cash, there are a lot of mom & pop businesses who deal that way.

Barring that, go to any diner or local eatery that's informal or knows your face, and tell them you need a case of this stuff to stock in your (well, boat might sound rich) whatever. Odds are they'll sell you the case at near their cost, for them it is good will.
