Pimientos de padron??

mickie44 Jan 30, 2007 01:12 PM

My brother and his wife, who lived in Galicia for several years, fell in love with pimientos de padron. Does anyone know where they could get them in or near Madison, Wisconsin where they now live? Either a restaurant or fresh peppers to prepare at home would be good.

    The only place I know where to get them is in Cali. Here is a link:


    He starts out the seed growing in the early season in Flordia, then sends them back to Palo Alto to finish the growing season. If that does work I know Solera gets them from him in mid summer time and you might convince them to sell you some out the back door.

      Thanks for the info. Would that be Solera in Minneapolis or is there one in Madison? If it's a restaurant I'm sure they wouldn't mind going there to dine. I live in Canada so am not familiar with the area and would appreciate more about Solera.

        Oops, I was talking about the restaurant in Minneapolis. Didn't reread thoroughly to see that they are in Madison. Solera is a great downtown restaurant with traditional items as well as there own take on spanish tapas. Here's a link.
