    Does anyone know of a source (preferably in the city -- closer to Lincoln Square the better) for gelatin sheets? Thanks in advance for the help.

    BR - You can get gelatin sheets from Chicago Game, but you have to buy a large box (400).

    Thanks . . . I know of Chicago Game . . . my former source for foie gras. You don't know how long they keep for, do you?

    If the sheets are kept dry they should last indefinitely.

    To date, I have only used powder, but I understand that the sheets are purer and do not import any "off" flavors, whereas the powder does. So I figured it's time to give it a try.

    Thank you . . . I also understand Fox & Obel might have them too in less than commercial volumes. That might be my first stop.

    Someone once told me that Treasure Island on Broadway has the sheets.

    Well, Treasure Island does not sell them and Fox & Obel is out at the moment but will be getting them back in.

    Bump

    Anyone seen gelatin sheets locally lately?

    Hi,

    I saw gelatin sheets at 88 Marketplace west of Chinatown recently. It was a few dollars for the package, though I did not note how many sheets.

    I have never used sheets, though two sheets are the equivalent of a teaspoon of powdered gelatin. I did think about buying them, though I have about 24 ounces at home and don't really need more. I talked myself out of it.

    Regards,
    Cathy

    For this, exactly. And this, coming from a person who loves grocery shopping and makes several grocery trips per week.

    This thread was started in 2007 and a lot of things have changed since then.

    HI,

    Stuck in the sand here, but I do value learning of resources and where to find them. I also think Amazon is a one-note answer, which could effectively make shopping and cooking a dull place.

    Just this year, there was a discussion on gelatin sheets and all, that you participated in. Gosh, what is old is new again!

    I couldn't agree more.

    Yep. But I found that price and selection were actually really good at Amazon and the convenience cannot be beat. That cannot be said across the board. A lot of other products are a bad deal there.
