The Haul

Trip to Astoria - salted anchovies (fresh and canned), dried Greek oregano, bay leaves, two kinds of oil, three kinds of beans, shrimp paste, sun-dried tomatoes, rose water, screwpine water, canned squid in their own ink, canned anchovies and capers in salt, golden raisins.

All for less than the price of an average meal.

Verily, in this city you can live like a God - something even the Roman emperors would be jealous of.

But ya gotta know how to cook!

Rose water for desserts and savory dishes.

Screw pine water for desserts and savory dishes.

Hope that answers your question. :-)
