Vanilla Beans and Stock Cubes

I actually did visit the spice house and stocked up on my saffron and smoked salt among other things...i love that shop!

however if anyone else is looking for vanilla beans in larger quantities i suggest they look online like i did. www.beanilla.com is where i got my beans...very well priced and the quality is excellent...

Vanilla Beans and Stock Cubes

Does anyone have suggestions on where i can get Vanilla Beans and beef stock cubes? I went to Treasure Island and found Vanilla beans..but baulked at the price of $6 for 2 pods. Is that the usual price? I've bought them for AU$12 for 6 beans in Sydney.

Kitchen Supply Stores in Chicago?

Called Toguri to ask for a quote and they are more expensive than NW cutlery..I went down to NW cutlery yesterday and it was like entering heaven...i swear i could almost hear angels singing. I would have spent a great deal longer there if the gf wasnt nagging me to hurry up. Ended up buying 3 MAC knives. People who are interested in these knives better get them quick cos the website says the prices are increasing this month.

Also got a copy of A Cooks Guide To Chicago and its going to prove to be an invaluable buy during my month long stay here.

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions!

Restaurant Supply Store?

let us know how it turns out...tho from the website it looks like they are more into the heavy equipment than pots and pans.

Kitchen Supply Stores in Chicago?

Thank you everyone for ur reponses and suggestions...so far Northwestern Cutlery seems to suit my needs the best and I absolutely cannot wait to get there! I'll no doubt my dragging my very bored girlfriend along for many fun filled hours (fun for me not for her..shes just there to make sure I don't end up selling a kidney to pay for a full set of MAC knives)

Kitchen Supply Stores in Chicago?

Hi I am a culinary student from Singapore and I will be visiting Chicago for the first time this April. Does anyone have recommendations for kitchen supply stores where I can get Chef jackets and pants and knife bags? Preferably not too far from the Hyde Park area? thanks in advance!
