Where can I find puff pastry?

bklyngrl Apr 9, 2007 01:54 PM

I'm participating in the Cook Book of the Month (Arabesque by Roden) and chose a recipe that requires puff pastry. I hit every store on Smith and Court (didn't make it to Garden of Eden) and could only find the Peppridge Farms pre-formed puff pastry discs. Any ideas where in the neighboorhood I might be able to find it in a more maleable form?

    A friend tells me that they sell Dufour (the butter-based brand) at Staubitz, the butcher shop on Court St. I doubt it is any cheaper than at Garden of Eden, but maybe it's more convenient for you.

      GARDEN of EDEN sells the Dufour Puff Pastry which is made with 100% pure butter. The other products are made with margarine or other synthetic fats.

      The Dufour product is excellent, and bakes up like homemade.The others are vile.

      Does SAHADI carry Dufour?

        I don't think they do. Or, at least they didn't around a year ago when I was looking for some made with butter.

          As far as I know Dufour is the only company that makes authentic 100% butter Puff Pastry. Their product is available at G of E for $9.99. That is aboiut the price it is everywhere, maybe a bit lower.

            That Dufour stuff is unreal. I used it only once, each mini-pastry tasted slathered of butter, they were gone in minutes. Slurp.

        I believe that Sahadi sells frozen puff pastry - in the back room, by the prepared foods.

          Thanks. I stopped by Garden of Eden and they had some in stock (for $9.99). I bet the price at Sahadi's is better.

            I'm sure it is! They also sell it at most grocery stores, in the frozen foods section.
