A favourite in the Rosindale neighbourhood since 1963. The owner (Tony, of course), is an Italian immigrant stocking the best cheeses, meats and Gourmet goods from his home country. Perfect for our Italian Cooking Classes.
This huge Asian grocery store has two Boston locations, (one in Chinatown) and is known to have great prices and fantastic selection. The staff generally doesn't speak English (the website isn't in English either), so be prepared to hunt for what you're looking for - you'll eventually find it!
After traveling around the world, owner Claire was inspired. This gorgeous shop in Cambridge specializes in rare and hard to find spices. They work hard to develop great relationships with their farmers and suppliers. It's a great choice for our Moroccan, Thai and Vietnamese cooking classes.
This incredible Italian market in the North End of Boston, MA was a passion project for two Italian immigrants looking for a market like back in their homeland. Salumeria Italiana carries everything from Guanciale to D.O.P. Tomatoes, to 25-year aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.
Baltic European Deli
Specializing in Polish and Eastern European foods, Baltic European Deli is a great stop for anyone in Boston taking a Hungarian Cooking Class. Find everything from sausages and paprika to Apricot fruit wine.
A short drive outside the Boston city centre to Chestnut Hill, you have what's rated one of the best grocery stores in the U.S. This chain is a mecca for food lovers looking for standard groceries to speciality foods across a variety of cuisines. Perfect for all The Chef & The Dish cooking classes.
