I'm a cook coming from China for a few days and when I go back to the States I always try to shop and stock up on anything I can't get back in Commie land. I just want to know if anyone has suggestions as far as shops to visit while I am back. Specifically I am looking for Esplette and specialty mexican products (dried chilies, spices, basically anything to produce a real Mexican meal) but if it is something good and something interesting I would defintely check out.
And of course cookware shops....anything that you would reccomend to a serious cook I would love to check out. Thank you.
