For baking, yes. But Mostly everything I need I can find at Whole Foods. The problem is just that it costs a lot. That's all.
As for cooking, it's not a problem at all unless the recipes are really exotic. Like in Alicia Silverstone's book she loves using Kobucha squash, in soups, pastas, side dishes etc. but I can never find the darn thing, even at Whole Foods. I think it's a seasonal gord too so it makes sense that I wouldn't be able to find it.
Some spices I am not used to using either are a little bit of a bother but not too much.
Also what I have found a little difficult is things in her book are called by different names. Like she calls "soy sauce" "shoyu" and I get confused sometimes....but other than that it's pretty easy for me.
The only complaint I have about Whole Foods is that their Tofu, Tempeh and other meatless products section is so tiny! It's like literally three small refrigerated shelves!! I'm sure they have some more meat alternatives in the freezer section...but as for getting it unprocessed, the section is so small.
"Ain't nobody got time for that!"
