La Salamandra Dulce de Leche

rowjo Jan 8, 2009 08:18 AM

Hey everyone...

It's cooking club dinner time again, and I am making Dulce de Leche ice cream for our Argentinian dinner. The recipe calls for a pound of Dulce de Leche...preferably La Salamandra from Argentina. Does anyone know where I can pick up this brand in the LA area? I live in Studio City...work in Hollywood...so spots closer to me would be great.

Thanks very much for the info!

    I just saw your post (I live in New York). We just retuned from BA and a friend told me to buy this brand of Dulce. There are many many brands in Argentina and this one is sublime. SorryI can't tell you where to buy it but try to get this brand partiularly if you can Totally,totally yum !!! good luck...

      I think Surfas has it.
      You could try the Argentinian place on Sepulveda, south of Sherman Way on the east side of street in the strip mall.

        Neither the Argentine place on Supelveda or the one on Western carry that brand. I ended up ordering online from Straub's grocery in Missouri...it was probably worth the shipping just so I don't have to run to the Westside. Bought some extra because I heard the stuff is so good...wouldn't want to run out of Dulce de Leche!

      Williams Sonoma carries the original and chocolate versions!
