Where are the best places to shop in the Boston area, especially for some of the best and more unusual ingredients? Though you can search many different resources, especially if seeking a particular item, I have found an excellent one-stop resource.
The new issue of Boston magazine (November 2008) has a comprehensive article called The Food Fanatic's Shopping Guide. It tells you where to find a wide assortment of ingredients, from olives to oysters, bacon to beef. It is more than just a list of food markets and shops, though it has a handy sheet you can cut out and carry with you. It also includes some facts and background information on some of the ingredients, as well as some cooking advice and recipes.
If you enjoy to cook, you definitely shoulod check out this article.
