Julie Carlson March 17, 2011

A must-visit on any serious culinary tour of San Francisco: Le Sanctuaire, a kitchen-shop-cum-culinary-museum that caters to some of the country's most refined chefs. Owner Jing Tio specializes in obscure, cutting-edge kitchen tools and ingredients, from sous-vide chamber vacuum sealers to a library of hard-to-source oils, vinegars, and spices (organized in categories like seeds and pods; roots and barks; and flowers, leaves, and berries). Go to Le Sanctuaire for more information.
