Food Fetish? Try this Website.

I never thought I’d be so into edible gold spray.  Or dehydrated raspberry powder.  Or Tahitian vanilla fleur de sel.  In fact, the only reason I ventured onto L’Epicerie’s website was because they carried Peugot salt and pepper shakers, which was on the shortlist for my friend’s wedding registry.  Once on, I was hooked by their “hard-to-find” section, and then totally mesmerized by “molecular gastronomy.”  My inner Wylie Dufresne came alive, sans funny sideburns.  L’Epicerie is a place where foodies and cooks and chefs indulge, but it’s got plenty for amateurs like me.  I will never know what to do with raspberry powder or gelatin sheets, although I can think of lots of uses for black truffle mayonnaise and boxes of macarons.  I love this site because it’s so eccentric, but with a clear appreciation all that culinaria has to offer.
