So I received a subscription to Cooks Illustrated for Christmas - Thanks Pikey! - and there are lots of great recipes in the first issue, but I need some help locating a few ingredients in the BoogieDown.
I really want to make the recipe for Thai Spicy Basil Chicken, but some of the ingredients are absent from my normal loop of gastronomic shopping (Arthur Avenue, Stew Leonard's, Stop and Shop).
No one seems to have fish sauce, Thai oyster sauce, or hot basil -n.b. this is not the normal Italian basil.
Any ideas? I'm thinking that maybe the small Vietnamese stores on Jerome south of Kingsbridge Road might have some of these. I am not pining to schlep down to Chinatown either, so please don't state the obvious that I can procure these goodies down there.
