Ingredient Guide

A lot of ingredients in Asian cooking are probably very unfamiliar to the regular American who shops at the local grocery store. This is a compilation of my favorite brand of ingredients: what it is, what it looks like, where to find it, and what brand I prefer. For the most part, they are available in Asian markets, but are also becoming more common in the international food section of the local grocery store.
