Pacific Gourmet – A Great Resource for the Best Chefs.

We have assembled an inventory that reflects the irresistible trend toward a genuinely global cuisine. When chefs show interest in an unusual ingredient, we listen.

When we source an exotic or singular item, we make it a point to share our find. We hardly ignore our local treasures but recognize that remarkable combinations can come from both near and far.



(PRU477) 12 x 1.1lb CASE

A new taste in a classic shape, Pumpkin Torchio is the perfect rich and earthy side dish for fall. It has Rustichella’s signature and well-loved chewy bite while retaining its beautiful orange color after cooking. The naturally sweet, almost buttery taste of the pumpkin lends itself to any cheesy or meaty combination.

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.
