Post Useful Food Purchasing Websites

Maybe some of you will find this useful, maybe not. I intend to create a list of websites in which you can order high quality products from directly. Many are purveyors of fine foods typically sold to restaurants, but they have on-line ordering in which they sell retail. Often its the shipping that drives up the cost.

Just a few to start, I will add more as I have time. Please send me a Private Message with suggestions for the list.

Hahah...... I guess I am from the old cooking school. I never heard of the gourmet food and Culinary school until the internet age.

Before I buy something to put into my stomach, I like to touch, poke, and smell first. .

If someone would like me to add something to the list send me a PM, hopefully doing so will keep the list more clear and concise.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Indeed. I'm trying their kabobs to start.

You might try Harbor Sweets - I carry their Marblehead Mints ( Marblehead Mints® ) for special occasions.

Since the subject of dried foods was raised, I have related question. Have you tried Barilla dried tortellini? I've been using Contadina fresh tortellini for many years but it needs to be refrigerated. The Barilla frees up some reefer and freezer space for other things.

Funny you mention the the dried Barilla tortellini, I just tried it last time we were out sailing, pretty good and of course not needing refrigeration is a big plus
