My cousin moved abroad many years ago and she always orders from African Hut when she misses the foods from South Africa.

That should have said 'just'.

AND they just arrived. A pound of dry porcini along with a complimentary packet of dry oyster mushrooms. Don't know what I'll do with them.

That's great - They have the best prices I've seen anywhere, great customer service, and fast shipping, as you've found out! And I love that they include a complimentary packet of a different type of mushroom.
When you open the container of porcini, the aroma is amazing!

Whole Foods just opened at Hilltop in Va Beach last month. They may have some.

I've ordered Parmigiano-Reggiano and Bel Paese cheeses from D'Italia.com and DH's brother sent us a package from Omaha Steaks for Christmas. Both have excellent service and quality.

My girlfriend in Atlanta can't find Romano cheese in her area. And the Parm is just the little packet from Stella. A local brand. So about twice a year I get two large pieces of both of them and send them to her. She feels like she has been sent large nuggets of gold. Living where I do, I get the imported from Italy, right off the wheel. It costs only $4.99 a pound.

Boston is the closet port to Europe. As a result, the prices for imported items are often less expensive than the rest of the country. Including cheeses.

$4.99/lb?!
That's highway robbery!

Dang, that's a good price. I think I pay 16-18 per lb for parm reg.

Locatelli Pecorino Romano for $4.99 per pound? Runs about $9 around here and it's one of my staples.

if for some reason, the fiscal cliff, say, caused a sharp price increase in the italian romano and parm cheeses for you, addie, would you still buy them--at $18.00/lb., addie? also, do you think you can love or appreciate lobster and the italian cheeses as much as some of us do who must pay premium prices to be able to enjoy them?
