bulgur for baking

Just read a piece in the NY Times about the benefits of baking with bulgur. Went to find it at Pavillions and Whole Foods no luck. I think I found some in an international market on San Fernando in Glendale a few years ago.

Anyone know of a good source to find bulgur and in the article 4 different grades of bulgur are mentioned for different kinds of baking.

  1. Any Middle-Eastern market will have it, at least 1,2,&3; the coarser #4 is uncommon in the U.S. BTW, made the Bulgar/Spinach/Chickpea recipe from the same issue of the NYT, and it was excellent.

      Jon's market, probably.

      And if you go to thr Zpuco Robertson area, Elat market on Pico and Wooster.

    2. Both Papa Christo's and Super Sun Market have many grades of bulgur. Whole Foods has one grade, in the bulk bin section (I've also seen it packaged, near the rice). Trader Joe's has bulgur too, but I haven't tried it.

      1. Super King markets have all grinds of bulghar, often on sale,

        1. You can also find all different grinds of bulgur at most Jon's Market locations.

          1. Thanks to everyone who responded all good suggestions, completely forgot about Papa Cristo's.

            BTW as well I made the leek tart and it was great. I used to have a favorite leek recipe and this was just as good but so much lighter and the whole wheat, olive oil crust tasted better than I could ever have imagined.

            Thanks again!
