  1. im pretty sure they have this at a lot of the caribbean grocers in hackney... at least i think thats what it is? i can double check next time i'm there

    1. I recall seeing quite a bit at the back of Lisboa Patisserie on Plender. It is a bakery but they also carry a lot of Portuguese products in the back.

      1. Thanks. I am based in NW London - so looking for somewhere local, but could make it up to Hackney at some point.

          There's a Lisboa Patisserie in Notting hill.

            I spotted some in Tesco in Balham! So maybe they will have it in other supermarkets too.

              i've seen it in a number of supermarkets

        2. Loads of it in Brixton, as there is both a Portuguese and Caribbean community.

          1. Where do you live and want to shop for it? N, S, E or W?

            1. Thanks all. ound at Lisboa. Though don't think I soaked it for long enough (only about 16 hours and my bradade de bacalao is somewhat salty). How long would you normally soak for?

                My Portuguese mother-in-law says that should have been enough. But...you wash it well first to get the surface salt off, then after it soaks for a couple hours, you change the water.
