One thing to miss about going out is eating great food without worry. Sure, ordering out can solve that quickly and easily. But, sometimes, there is just something satisfying about learning how to make a dish that you would normally eat in a fancy restaurant.

For those times, groceries and delicatessens that stock premium and gourmet items are the only way to go. Here are 11 premium online groceries to satisfy your expensive cravings.
