      Which Pasta Shop, Rockridge or 4th St? I haven't seen it there, but I could check again. Maybe they'd order it for me.

      What source did you buy it online from?

        Apparently you can make your own:

        Also, have you tried any middle eastern markets?

        1. re: Ruth Lafler

          Not really interested in making my own, as I don't think I'll get the fine texture that I want (plus, it looks like a lot of work on top of what I'll already be doing with the paste!)

          Haven't tried ME markets. Didn't want to go on a wild-goose chase, which is why I thought I'd ask here first. I have already looked at all the gourmet shops that I regularly frequent.

            You might contact these people to get a list of distributers. They make pistachio paste and its kosher. You might try your neighborhood markets, Saffron or Zand's.

              who are you talking about when you say, "these people?"

                Sorry, I also always seem to leave something out when I cook.

                  King Arthur sells their products.

                    Wolfe and Wally, thanks for the tip! King Arthur also sells hazelnut praline paste --something I've been searching for a while.


    2. That's used in some Persian pastries. Gve Zand a call.
