Timeless Organic Farro

(GR105)- 25 LBS

The Timeless Co-op is located in central Montana on the Northern Plains in the shadow of the Rockies. Their Organic Farro is grown on small family farms with no irrigation. The grains are semi-pearled, which allow for a more reasonable cooking time, and they derive their generous flavor from the mineral-rich soil of the region.

Nippon Super Crispy Tempura Batter Mix

(IJ152) - 3.3 lbs

Why is tempura one of the most delicious things you can eat and also one of the most disappointing? Great tempura needs to be made with an impeccably fresh central ingredient and come to the table hot and, above all, crispy. Nippon Shokken has taken care of the hardest part by balancing the precise combination of starches to ensure an enduringly crisp coating.

We carry three different zaatars from three different countries in the Middle East and three different heritage grits from three different counties in South Carolina.

Like a museum curator or a symphony director, a good purveyor knows that you don’t throw out the old masters but you must keep things interesting with new sounds and colors – or flavors.

If you don’t see what you’re looking for in our catalog, ask us for it anyway. It might be already in our sights.
