Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

A Culinary Bonanza!

My mail-order ingredients arrived today, just four days after I placed my order on They arrived in a giant box, with several smaller boxes nestled inside, and it felt just like Christmas, as I opened each meticulously packed item. The breakable bottles were protected with a generous layer of bubble wrap, and the non-breakables were wrapped in paper and cushioned with styro nuggets. I don?t know how they do it. Twenty-nine items at bargain basement prices, free shipping, and enough packing materials to build a small fort, all for less than $60. Most impressive.
