What types of basic bread ingredients?

Great info Longwind, just the type of info I'm looking for. Thank you!

Oh, mostly seeds, grains, malt, Fiori di Sicilia and other extracts and flavors, that sort of thing, depending on what sort of baked goods one likes, not forgetting the sweet yeast breads. I figure dill, rosemary, etc., that I use in breads can be grown anywhere. Breads just do so much to make things like simple soups a great meal.

And if it was me going to a place with ready access to fresh seafood, I'd want to be sure I had or could get plenty of seaweed suchi wrapper and short grain sushi rice and the accessory ingredients, ginger, wasabi... and sauces. For all I know, all that may be right on the shelves there, but I'd want to know and wouldn't want to pay some silly price for rice vinegar, for instance.
