Gold leaf?

stircrazy Dec 4, 2012 12:52 PM

Hi all,

Anybody have any idea where I might find gold leaf in or around Boston? WS was a bust and Sur La Table only carries it online now. I have a set of truffles that are about to look mighty naked. :)

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    try the candy/cake supply stores- can't remember the name of the one down by courthouse seafood in cambr. also, ask a local choc maker; mybe they wouldn't mind selling you a few sheets- Lee Napoli at ChocoLee in the So End- is a very nice person.

      I just did a search and found this thread from 2006: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/355553
      It mentions checking an art supply store or Joann fabrics.
      Also found these places that use it: Sweet Cupcakes, Haru, Basho

        Joann fabrics is a good idea. They have a large baking and candy making aisle. You can also try Serenade Chocolates in Brookline.

          Thank you all for checking around and for the great ideas. I tried a couple of the options but struck out (JoAnn's and a local chocolate shop and Whole Foods). Changed my truffle recipe and ordered some gold leaf online to have on hand for next time!
