Tulsa may be landlocked in the middle of the country, but there is no shortage of globally inspired cuisine. Latin-inspired restaurants and food trucks can be found all over the city. Sushi, pho and banh mi have become mainstream, and the Mediterranean diet has launched olives and feta to the top of the food chain.

Fortunately, dozens of markets have popped up over the years to supply home cooks with all of the imported specialty items needed to enjoy these cuisines in the home kitchen.

We narrowed the choices down to three of the most popular markets and have included some local chefs’ must-have ingredients, trend-setting items and an easy-to-master recipe for each. — Judy Allen, for the Tulsa World Magazine, tulsaworldmagazine.com
