what's up everyone. i got into cooking recently, and have a question:

where can i get uncommon ingredients like foie gras and creme fraiche, and quality ingredients like truffles and fresh seafood for sushi? damned recipes i've read at Borders look interesting, but they require a little more exotic than normal ingredients. I live in Southern California. Thanks much.

Fresh sea food is a challenge for every chef these days. Seems we're running out of it on a global level.

Foie gras isn't very hard to find in most cities, and I wouldn't be surprised to find it in a few supermarkets, provided they're in a middle/upper class areas.

Truffles are expensive.

And then there's the internet. You might be able to buy directly from the supplier.

I live in Southern California. Are you near San Diego?

Go to Point Loma Seafood. It is the best fish market in all of SD and possibly socal.
