Where to find gourmet Turkish delight?
Awhile ago--years now, I think-- Whole Foods in the Bowery carried gourmet (I.e., not pre-packaged, and unusual flavors) Turkish delight. They no longer carry it because one of the ingredients didn't meet their requirements, but no one there can tell me who made it or from where I can now get it.
Any recommendations for something similar?
There are several places on Atlantic Av Bet Clinton and Court St in Brooklyn that have bulk Turkish delight. Sahadi, Malko, Damascus bakery.
I can't think of any place in Manhattan.
They have it at Kalustyan's (by the cashier); I bought a piece of pistachio turkish delight from there a few weeks ago. It was really good but expensive at $20/lb. I got one piece 1"x2"x1" and it was ~$3. Craving it again but wish I can get it for cheaper in Manhattan.

I made some a few weeks ago based on a recipe/article from Harold McGee/NYT. Came out pretty good considering it was the first time. Used rose water. The process mostly takes place in the microwave.
