While nothing can replace dealing directly with a farmer, Agri Exotic Trading comes in a very close second. These guys are very impressive and do an amazing job selecting the best product.
Tomas Keller once said "... what we do can be explained in a very simple equation; Product + Execution. That's it! Don't over think it and don't over look it!"

Cultivating a relationship with a purveyor can be just as important as the cooks in your kitchen!
