We know the feeling. Why didn't anyone tell me about this before? We actually have. But good news bears repeating: For a couple of days, every few months Epicure Imports, a wholesale importer of gourmet foods in North Hollywood, extends its doors and its wholesale prices to the public. And this Friday, April 15 from 1:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday April 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. are those two days until the next dates in June.

When we first heard of this sale and its warehouse setting, we imagined selling weighty cans of escargots and 10+ pound sacks of couscous. Which they do and are nice things to have, but are in quantities that are a bit excessive for the home cook. However, when we finally paid a visit, we were pleased to see their sale extended to items that come in individual consumer sizes like Maldon salts and Fallot mustard. They even pre-slice and price items like cheeses and Serrano hams in manageable sizes specifically for the sale.

We went to their first sale of the year this February with our camera to give a better sense and point out the type of items they may have available this week. Turn the page for a brief tour...
