Where to find Pinnekjøtt?

Would like to prepare traditional Christmas meal for my Norwegian son-in-law. Where can I obtain the "stick meat" needed? Anyone have recipe? I know to serve with potatoes and rutabagas mashed together.

Where to find authentic Spanish chorizo?

Need Spanish chorizo for a recent Splendid Table recipe (Roasted Cod with Chorizo Vinaigrette). Any ideas where I might get this in LA. (I live mid-Wilshire but willing to travel to get authentic ingredients.)

Where can I obtain a pullman loaf of white bread for an upcoming event?

Planning on making a sandwich loaf for a baby shower next month. Does anyone know which LA bakeries sell a quality pullman loaf of white and/or wheat bread?

Flannel Cakes - hunh?

Believe me, flannel cakes are not like pancakes! They're more tender and less filling. I can't stand pancakes but adore flannel cakes.

flannel cakes

I posted yesterday about johnnycakes but I was wrong! What I meant was flannel cakes. I see that they are served at Musso & Frank but is that the only place one can get them? I am used to the ones served at the defunct Nibbler's on Wilshire in Beverly Hills.

johnny cakes?? what are they & where can i get some?

I've been looking for the type of johnnycakes that Nibbler's in Beverly Hills used to serve with apricot syrup. They were large (plate-sized), thin, and tender. All the searching I've done turns up "cornmeal" pancakes and I don't know if they're what was served at Nibbler's? Does anyone know where the type I'm describing can be found in LA. (I don't like the regular type of pancakes because they're so filling!)
