Here's some other info on a recent thread re: torrone

Edited by ludja (log)

"Under the dusty almond trees, ... stalls were set up which sold banana liquor, rolls, blood puddings, chopped fried meat, meat pies, sausage, yucca breads, crullers, buns, corn breads, puff pastes, longanizas, tripes, coconut nougats, rum toddies, along with all sorts of trifles, gewgaws, trinkets, and knickknacks, and cockfights and lottery tickets."

-- Gabriel Garcia Marquez, 1962 "Big Mama's Funeral"

Shouldn't any well stocked Asian market carry this item? It's used as the outside wrapper of fresh spring rolls in Vietnamese cooking and I believe there are some Chinese and Thai dishes that use it also. Should be no more than $2 - $2.50 per package.

It's not the same stuff.

The asian rice wrappers are much thicker and are soaked in water to make them pliable.

The pastry stuff is paper thin and would fall apart in water.
