comment Cheaper alternative to parmesan cheese?
I found a cheaper local store which offer "parmesan" cheese with much lower price. It is not Parmigiano Reggiano, but is acceptable because it has brand. In supermarket, it sells for 59.9 HKD for 250g. In this shop, it only require 47HKD for 250g. And it also offers 1kg package which priced at 135HKD.

@nico What is the difference with Parmesan Cheese and what you called Parmigiano Reggiano? I've only seen Cheese named Parmesan in my local supermarket. It's the first time I've heard Parmigiano Reggiano.

I bought extra light olive oil, as combined mixture of virgin olive oil and refined olive oil. I think it is okay.

comment Are 'premium' spices worth the expense?
Agree. You pay for convenience, brand and the 'possible' better handling of the ingredient by expensive brand. But that would be just an assumption, no one knows what is the story of the ingredients.
