Baker's supplies in Fairfield County?
Are there any stores that specialize in ingredients that baker's want/need? I've ordered all I can from King Arthur, they don't have some of the things I need--like wafer paper.
Elizzie...I'm a baker, too, and if there is anything "special" I need, I plan ahead and order it online. I don't know of any shops that specialize in baker's supplies, especially ingredients. Globe Restaurant supply has a lot of Wilton stuff, pans, parchment paper, decorating tips and such, and they can order just about anything you might need in that area. But, if it's some unusual ingredient, like this wafer paper, you'll have to go to NYC or get it online. (New York Cake and Baking Co has a website; http://www.nycake.com/index.asp) Good luck, and if you do find a local source, be sure and let us know.
There is a store across the street from Circuit City next to Super Stop and Shop on Route 1 in Norwalk called Cook's Nook. It used to have some low-med baking stuff. Jfood was looking for a white porcelain pot to cooked hard boiled eggs and figured this may be the place. When he walked in he almost fell over. They converted to a med/high to high end store. I found the owner and asked what happened. He told me that when WalMart moved in down the street they could either close or change. They changed and very much for the better. They have expanded twice and are planning another expansion. The owners were really nice and jfood definitely has it on his list to go to when he needs stuff.
Give them a call and see if they can help.
