Sacramento Foodies-ISO BEST Foodie shopping & dining...

NoCAFoodie | Dec 18, 2009 10:22 AM

We live in the culinary desert of the north, north state. Sacramento or Redding are our closest "cities" for "foodie" shopping. Foodie...scratch Redding. So...help, please...please...

Best places to find...

Ethnic ingredients? I cook all Asian cuisines, Italian (Hazan in particular at the moment), Mexican, would love to start Spanish (i.e. Tapas), French, et al... Not Indian though.

Is there anywhere I can acquire veal bones for stock at a sensible price? $18.99 for osso bucco is not a sensible price for veal stock bones. Any fabulous places for wonderful tidbits I certainly cannot find at home? I'm the kind who, upon finding real Spanish chorizo, promptly decided we were having paella for dinner and picked up everything else just cuz we found chorizo!! And loved it!!

Specialty cooking items....I want, crave, need a sticky rice steamer! A real, no kidding paella pan? I have a theory about mounting a paella pan over a wok ring...

Hubby is very easy going...he'd just love great places to nosh along the way, and a nice place to have dinner in the end. Someplace that will make my eyes light up and encourage me to delve deeper into culinary mastery.

Thanks so much...I know there are some great Sacramento Foodies out there! I'm not worried about getting there before Christmas day either!
