These are some of my favorite online food sources, market places, wineries and other cool spots:

Wine Guerrilla
Our family winery. Best zinfandels in Sonoma County. Make it your family wine, too!
http://www.wineguerrilla.com

Boccalone
Located in the fabulous Ferry Building in San Francisco, these guys specialize in salumi — including such hard-to-find delicacies as lardo and nduja (spreadable salami). You gotta love a company whose tagline is, “Tasty Salted Pig Parts.” Join their Salumi Society if you’ve got the chicharones.

Anson Mills
Heirloom grains, including their fabulous and famous polenta and grits. The rustic polenta integrale is to die for — but be prepared, you’ve gotta cook it for hours… just like your Italian grandma would’ve, if you had one…

Il Mercato Italiano
Just about anything Italian you could need online — with some great deals sometimes in their Sale section.

La Española Meats
All things Spanish, including their own homemade chorizos from various different regions of Spain — try the morcilla! If you live in L.A., you can visit their groovy little warehouse store in Harbor City near San Pedro and get yourself a paella pan.

Doves2Day
Life & food-related reflections from a dear friend who we’re fortunate enough to have as a neighbor.

ChefShop.com
Pretty much any specialty ingredient you could want. Kinda pricey. But mmm, Mangalitsa lard? Are you kidding me?

David Coffaro Winery
A good friend who makes great wines. And you can purchase futures and save money!
http://www.coffaro.com

My Pet Chicken
The best online resource for chicken-related stuff. Great information, and you can buy baby chicks in quantities as few as three at a time, and have them shipped anywhere!
http://www.mypetchicken.com

D’Artagnan
A great gourmet food source, where you can buy game, pates, cured meats, truffles and other delectable goods.
http://www.dartagnan.com

Rancho Gordo
Dried heirloom beans.
http://www.ranchogordo.com

La Tienda
More good Spanish things, if you can’t find what you’re looking for from La Española above.
http://www.tienda.com

Harvey’s Guss Meat Co.
One of L.A. best butchers — and our bookkeeper’s dad. Get yerself some dry aged steaks and ask Harvey to cut them thick. You gotta call ahead!
