When you’re buying food for your restaurant, you need to be thinking about whether that product is a commodity or speciality.  When cooking with commodities, the difference between a cheaper and more expensive quality will be minimal in the taste of the final product.  There is no need to spend money on the highest quality commodities when doing so makes no change to the final product.
