Re: Puff pastry sheets

Usually on shelves, in an upright chilled cabinet, with cream cakes, and fresh part-baked bread and croissants - often before or after the dairy cabinets.

There's usually enough to filo basket.

Re: Puff pastry sheets

You will get sub-standard ghee at most Asian and Indian stores.
You will get ‘almost-like home’ quality at the Reformhaus, but a tiny bottle cost 11 chf
You can buy a stick of butter (die butter/Koch butter), put it in a pan on medium-low heat for 10 mins, just check to see it does not turn brown.
Filter it into a clean container. Viola….it smells and tastes like heaven.
You can use the microwave oven too, take 5 mins and bit of practice, google the times and the method

Re: Puff pastry sheets

In both migros and coop you will find it in the frozen section - generally where ready-to-eat pizzas are kept. It is called Blatterteig or Pate Feuilletee or Pasta sfoglia (actually typing from the cover that i just got from migros)

Re: Puff pastry sheets

any one know where to buy Ghee?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghee


Ghee is a class of clarified butter that originated in South Asia and is commonly used in South Asian (Indian, Bangladeshi, Nepali and Pakistani) cuisine and ritual.

I have been told its called Brut or some other name here in Migros or Coop, but i just cant find it anywhere.

Re: Puff pastry sheets

About the ghee: do a search for ethnic grocery stores on the forum and you'll come up with a list of indian shops like Agarwals that will definitely have it in Zurich.

You can buy Bratbutter here in larger Migros and Coop shops, in packets with green stripes, if you cook it gently a bit longer you will get Ghee.

http://www.google.ch/imgres?num=10&h...r:11,s:0,i:115

It took me a long time to find it. Because it will keep unopened without refrigeration, it is not always in the 'fridges, it is often kept near the cooking oils!

It's called Bratbutter in Swiss-German. You can find it near the oils in Migros (room-temperature shelves) and in the cold shelves in Co-op. Migros offers two sizes.

Good question - I don't know either, can somebody help?

In French it is 'mdr' (mort de rire = dead with laughter)

Re: Puff pastry sheets

It is called Blätterteig. It is in the ready made dough section which in bigger shops is its own department.Otherwise close to the cheeses in smaller supermarkets.I hope that`s what you mean. Good luck!
