Anyone seen Boos Block Mystery Oil in a local store? It is used on butcher block counters and cutting boards.

http://newyork.seriouseats.com/2014/0 ... ah-vegetarian-market.html

This place sounds interesting, so I thought I'd pass on the article. Too bad PATH to WTC is closed on weekends.

On a less vegen note - I tried the bbq quail from the 440 Asian Market. Very tasty - $5.00 for two. I think one on a bed of greens would make a great first course for a special dinner.

Heads up.

Coincidentally, FloFab mentioned a market at Grand and Hester in her column yesterday which I figured gave it some cred which I planned on trying. I think I'll stick to WF and that place in Newport that is not called William Sonoma.

Not exactly what you are looking for, but I bought frozen corn tortillas imported from El Salvador today at La Conga - just masa and water. They are pretty thick, like an arepa.

Not a sourcing request, but a brand recommendation -

Recently learned that Japan produces combo miso/dashi pastes. I bought some and it was quite good. Curious if anyone thinks one brand is superior to the others.

Did you try the shop two doors in from Barrow/Erie on Newark?
I'd print out the link and show it to them.
If it works, I have a make believe friend who needs to lose 5-10 pounds - let me know and I'll pass the info on.

Anyone know where I can get Yacon syrup from? Whole Wallet up in Paramus failed - the guy said they've had requests for it, but they don't stock it.

This stuff: http://www.amazon.com/Yacon-Syrup-Met ... -Money-back/dp/B00GNKM1IU

I checked yesterday at Corrado's in NA they didn't have it with the other Bob's Red Mill stuff. But I did get 10 jars of marinated artichoke hearts at $1 each!

Corrado's has a nice variety of stock but you have to check the expiration dates on their perishable items though. I wish they would get an Italian bread supplier for thier daily fresh bread section. Their fruits and vegetables are pretty good and reasonably priced.


I always do; they had really cheap blackberries this week, but every container I viewed had the white fuzzy mold growing inside.

Have you tried Despana in Soho? I have only seen candied pumpkin used in some Spanish Turrons.

Fairway had Kumato tomatoes, 3 one pound packages, on sale this week for $5. Great price for the only tasty tomatoes this time of year. I went to the store in Woodland Park (aka West Paterson) on rt 46 just west of where it connects to Route 3.

Also - you might have noticed that Sorento cheese has teamed up with an Italian cheesemaker. I tried the part skim ricotta. Truly disgusting. I tossed out 2 lbs after the first taste. Sweet and tasted of some sort of gelatine.

Sorry - this might not be the best rubric to post this article under.

Also, using this in reverse - rollmops are back at Whole Foods, Tribeca, after having been gone for a while.

Partially frozen cutlets are actually fairly easy to slice thin, but I typically just hammer the cutlets flat to about 1/2" for uniform grilling and better marinating. They're surprisingly plastic.

22nd Street Butcher Shop in Bayonne on Avenue C, they did some veal scaloppini for me last week that were terrific and they do chicken the same way. They actually wrapped them piece by piece on individual sheets of butcher paper before they wrapped them.
