Feuilletine Flakes - Pastry Crunch

As Tina said in Food & Wine Magazine "Add these buttery, toasty-sweet shards to ganache, frostings and truffles for a super crunch."

As Kristin says “Fantastic Quality, Great Crunch - I added these to a berry milk crunch I made (Christina Tosi recipe) and it turned out delicious! They added excellent, subtle crunch without being sharp. Looking forward to experimenting with them more.”

Bigoli Nobili Mori Pasta - Sgambaro

The spaghetti Bigoli Nobili Mori pasta is absolutely fabulous! How is it possible that a pasta can taste this good? We don't know but we love it! If you can have only one pasta, it might have to be this one! 

Heritage Shortbread - Medium Box

This buttery, crisp - but slightly moist - shortbread is handmade by Willow McCrain in South Carolina's Lowcountry region. It's baked to a golden brown and its texture and flavor border on the sublime. Willow uses only the best ingredients -- and you can tell. We like our shortbread to be crisp when you bite into them, but not hard. And these shortbreads do not disappoint! 

Willow uses an old family recipes -- passed down from mother to daughter for generations. Although the recipe is not complicated and has just a few pure ingredients, the key secret to the consistent and delicious outcome is clearly the love and caring that Willow puts into every batch. 

Traditional shortbread lovers will be thrilled. Shortbread has often been considered the traditional hostess gift, in our modern life, this is still a wonderful thank you gift and a treat to yourself!  


Domaine de Bequignol Chocolate Covered Walnuts

To die for!

"I have an irresistibility index I apply to chocolate. How long does it take to stop eating without painful self denial? For all of ChefShop’s remarkable collection of dark chocolates, for the Pralus bars, the Margaux cherries, the Arriba couverture, the Slitti bars, the Quadrotta, the Cleopatra pearls, the irrestibility index is way above average. But for the chocolate covered walnuts, it is off the charts. To stop, lock yourself in another room." 

-- victor 

What a special treat! 

"I love chocolate and I love walnuts, especially when toasted so I thought I'd give these a try - so glad I did. They arrived a little melty (hot in Texas), but I put them in the frig and later in the day I sampled one of the best nut confections ever. The chocolate is not too sweet and with the crunchy walnuts, this is a perfect after dinner bite."

Posardi Passata - Finely Chopped Sardinian Tomatoes

Passata, loosely translated as a tomato purée, is made at home during the months when tomatoes are fully ripe southern Italy and Sardinia.

These slow-cooked tomatoes from Sardinia have their skins and seeds strained out before the sauce is bottled.

The low temperature preserves all of the super aromatic, fresh tomato flavor, whereas a typical tomato sauce that’s been long simmered has much less vibrant tomato presence.

Use this passata straight from the jar when making lasagna, eggplant parm or a simple bowl of spaghetti. It’s also a superstar in soups and meat stews.

Lummi Island Wild Albacore Tuna Wild-Caught Canned Tuna From the Northwest

I want to tell you a wonderful fish story. It started with a trip out-of-state and ended with meeting a neighbor I hadn’t met before. Funny how that works some time. Not exactly a next door neighbor, but a neighbor to the north by about 90 minutes as the car drives…

This was hands-down one of the best canned tunas I’ve ever had— *****

"and it’s not even oil-packed! I was expecting dry and dense, as water-packed tuna often is. This was so flavorful, moist and delicious on its own that I had it straight from the can, with just a small blast of lemon juice. It easily rivals any of the fancy Italian and Spanish olive oil-packed tuna brands. It’s the perfect tuna to build a Salade Niçoise around!!!"

La Trinquelinette Apricot Jam French Apricot Jam
Sometimes unrequited love is worth it!


"I’ve always been a “strawberry” flavor loyalist. My father used to love apricot jam....I decided after visiting Paris in 2019(thank goodness we went when we did) I’d give this apricot jam a try. Far and away the best quality and flavor....went back to reorder and was too late. Sold out. Says it all right? I used it first on a fresh baked lemon ginger scone from a local Seattle area bakery. Have it on pre-order now. ❤️!"

Kishibori is located on the small island of Shodoshima in the Seto Inland Sea. 1 of only 14 artisan brewers, the Shodoshima Island-based family-run shoyu brewers are featured in the Netflix series "SALT FAT ACID HEAT".


"I so enjoyed the series "Salt Fat Acid Heat", so when I saw that ChefShop carried this, I decided to try it. WOW! I was blown away by the taste and smell of what no-kidding real soyu. I used a small daub on my bean soup, a splash in my sautéed greens--it has such a bright umami taste--you can use this for any dish that you want to add a more complicated salty flavor. Really yummy!"
-- alice

Worth every cent

"This is by far the best soy sauce ever. Regular grocery store sauces taste like an entirely different product. Kishibori is rich, complex, and full of that elusive umami flavor. Highly recommend!"

Chesnok Red Organic Hard-neck Garlic Chesnok Red
Organic Hard-neck Garlic

There are over 300 varieties of hardneck and softneck garlic grown in the world. In grocery stores today, softneck is the most common. It lasts a long time and travels well, which is why much of the garlic sold everywhere is softneck.

Hardneck garlic is more akin to wild garlic, and with that there is more garlic flavor, different flavors, spicy hot flavors. Altogether hardneck is lovely garlic.

There are many subspecies of hardneck garlic. The five main varieties we sell include: Rocambole, Purple Stripe and Porcelain.

Hardneck garlic is easy to peel, often with giant cloves. This garlic is the best!

Cold Mountain Dry Rice Koji Cold Mountain Dry Rice Koji the secret ingredient!

Easy to use with incredible results

"After hearing about Shio Koji, a lot, it was time to give it a try. With Cold Mountain Koji it was as simple as adding the Koji rice, some water and salt. After 10 days +1 it was ready. Since then I have tried it on and in just about everything. Fish, meats, vegetables, anywhere I would normally add a dash of salt, including on my eggs. The effect has ranged from subtle to profound. This is my new secret ingredient. Combine it with a good soy sauce for even more effect in stir fry or fried rice. Marinate meats before grinding them into sausage or even in burgers. The possibilities are many. If you are into fermenting then definitely give this a try. You will be back for seconds..."

Chateau Virant AOC Olive Oil Chateau Virant AOC Olive Oil Amazing Gold Medal Award Winning French Olive Oil!

To the nose it is wild, full of olive, and is super tingly to the inner nostril hairs.

The color is a light yellow green, without any dark shadows or edges on the spoon.

To the tip of the tongue there are some great wonderful soft touches. It feels good. The flavor of the oil is distinct and you can taste it here with just a touch.

Full of richness, a mouthful will surprise you. It starts like a nice french oil, buttery and vapory, and just as it disappears there is an explosion of olive and if you pay attention, your nose will tingle again, and then you will get this almost assault, a large tickle, actually a massive tickle, that makes you cough. Some might think it is a peppery finish, which it is, yet it is not an Italian peppery kick.

ChefShop Cocoa Powder

Cocoa Powder
As seen in Saveur Magazine (Saveur 100) and Chocolatier Magazine.

Best Cocoa on the Planet!

This Dutch process dark unsweetened cocoa powder is in a class unto itself. We have removed less fat from our cocoa (22-24% fat content), which results in a more intense and immediate chocolate flavor. This wonderful Dutch cocoa powder has a touch of ground vanilla bean.

"I have been using this exclusively for years now. I have a 'secret' brownie recipe that I make with this cocoa, syrup made from the cocoa and only the best ingredients. Everyone goes ga-ga over them. Syrup - so easy to make - anything that calls for cocoa I use this. Sometimes I mix just a touch into my coffee from a treat. If you have not tried this yet you need to. You WILL NOT be disappointed!!!"
