Essential Ingredient

The la di da store for those who not only mean business in the kitchen, but want their friends to know that they’ve gone above and beyond to source the finest jars of truffles, infused oils and Himalayan salt bricks for dinner. Adjoining the (also rather fancy) Prahran food markets, this joint is like the couture shop of foodstuffs. They run workshops, sharpen your knives and sell high end cookware there too, so if you’ve got any cash left after you’ve stocked up on saffron oil and couverture chocolate, a new hand blown wine decanter will really ensure that you win in the competitive dinner party stakes.
