    It's that time of year. Is everyone buying their culinary goods online or do you have any favorite catalogs you like to browse through?

    Sur la Table- not bad if you don't get any professional ones. (And, I have a gift certificate to spend) I get one from the Vermont Country Store (not sure the name is right) with lots of olf-fashioned, low-tech stuff that's lots of fun to look at.

    Bambi was a boy
    (but I'm sure he had a life long interest in curing foods, his hobbies were archery and rifle practice, his ambition was to get a full rack, and he tried to be a sensitive creature with doe eyes...buckeyes?)

    Wasn't aware Balducci's had locations outside of NYC. My favorite gourmet shop of all time. They always carried the freshest arctic char.

    I realized it after I posted. I entered a keyword in a search and the rest is pretty easy to figure out.

    The topic isn't totally obsolete.

    You should get a Lee Valley catalog.  They mostly design and sell innovative and very sophisticated woodworking tools under the Veritas label, but they have some nifty kitchen tools, too.  It was founder Leonard Lee who, at least eighteen or twenty years ago, pointed out that the MicroPlane, just introduced as a wood plane, made a terrific food grater. The rest is history.  (It's also, indeed, a great wood plane.)  Lee Valley also have a catalog of excellent gardening tools.  

    I don't know if they have moved to a separate catalog for cooking tools or if these are still included in the woodworking catalog. It's definitely worth checking them out.

    Well, it's not for kitchen equipment, but they have herbs. Plants and seed. For the Europeans only, I guess, but their printed catalogue is the perfect garden porn:

    I love browsing that and contemplating how much more of the lawn I will sacrifice for more herb garden area... :D
