For those who search out the freshest ingredients and always curious about flavors, let me recommend one of my favorite stores….Monterey Market in Berkeley. I’ve been shopping here for decades and this is my first write up. Why? Because I love it so much.
This institution has served me in so many different regards. I’ve been getting “special” ingredients here and yesterday, again, solidified my adoration for the store. Its it because of the neat isles and wide open shopping area? Definitely not. Its because they have truffles, along with Romanesco, and purple Cauliflower and outrageously fresh Shishito peppers. Under one roof lays a culinary ingredients wonderland.
Stroll the isles on day and buy one thing new each time. The memories will linger on your palate forever.
