I love the texture of the flakes of this gentle-flavored finishing salt from Britain, available at better supermarkets such as Whole Foods Markets.
This vibrant ground red pepper from Basque country is hard to find in the U.S. – at least in Texas. I found it at Sur La Table. The little jar was nearly $13, but it's worth it.
Maille Dijon mustard
La Tourangelle roasted walnut oil
I love the lightly roasty walnut flavor. It goes off quickly unless refrigerated. Turns a simple vinaigrette into a luxury.
India Tellicherry black peppercorns
Deep, fruity, spicy aroma and flavor. Penzeys sells top quality at the best price I've found.
Normally I use unbleached organic all-purpose flour, but Wondra is unbeatable for a quick dusting to brown meats.
This red pepper from Turkey has marvelous flavor.
I much prefer this harissa-in-a-tube to the fancier-looking brands in jars. It has a nice dose of caraway flavor.
