Planning Your Culinary Future in Los Angeles, California
One visit to Surfas—the venerable restaurant supply retailer established in 1937—and you’ll aspire to become a professional caterer. Giant bains-marie, tiny cookie cutters, tubs of colored sugars, and handy gadgets whose functions aren’t always clear cry out in unison, “You need me!” Indeed, you wander the well-stocked aisles racking your brain for a reason to buy just about everything you see. Don’t miss the enticing cheese counter, nor the shelves and shelves of gourmet oils, vinegars, preserves, and pastas. Surfas also offers cooking demos, classes, tastings, and occasional knife-sharpening. Your luckiest day is the one when you happen to catch the house-made baguettes coming right out of the oven.
