We’ve always known ChefShop as an online resource, although it’s also a brick-and-mortar boutique in Seattle. Way back in the nineties, ChefShop founders Tim Mar and Mauny Kaseburg wanted to provide their customers with LOTS of information about the artisan products they were selling, which — at the time — most people weren’t doing.

Their strategy translated well onto the web, and has since grown into a respected online resource for specialty foods, recipes, and product information.

The inventory at ChefShop is both broad and specific. They have everything from fish to spices to produce, but within those categories you’ll find hard-to-find products like Hawkshead relishes, pickles, and preserves from the UK, Mangalitsa bacon, and fennel pollen from Italy.

ChefShop posts lots of recipes and videos online, and they maintain a blog with informative articles. They also hold cooking classes and host events at their Seattle store.
