Splashing out, virtually at least.

If you had 100 Euros extra right now, to buy cooking ingredients, what would they be?

Really fancy vanilla beans or saffron but I wouldn't be stingy with it like usual. A whole large bean in my creme brule and lots of saffron in my rice!

I would stock up on finishing salts and gourmet pepper.

I don't know how much 100 Euros would buy, but I would buy as many avocados and other guacamole ingredients as I could, along with an equal amount of nacho cheese, jalapenos, and white corn tortilla chips! Since it is strictly virtual, I won't have to worry about my blood pressure and blood glucose levels! (Although I think they just both went up when I wrote the ingredients down!).

Fresh Truffles from France or Italy.

Don't think $133.00 dollars would buy an aweful lot of stuff. Maybe 1/4 of a golf ball size white truffle. Maybe a small jar of beluga caviar?

Lobster, lots, butter and expensive cheeses.

I think, I would go with the stocking up on vanilla and saffron too. :)

Also, I would go to the Asian store and buy some of all the spices I am missing. I generally collect them, one at a time, and have always run out of some of them.
