Taste of the Town readers find ciabatta loaves but not rolls


For Kathy Boland, who’s looking for ciabatta rolls (not loaves) and pretzel rolls, her fellow readers have lots of suggestions for the latter, though not the former.

Ruth Jagodzinski, Theresia Forgey, Joyce Hambacher and Eric Hambacher recommended the German Bread Bakery, which has locations at 2237 N. Rampart Blvd. and 9255 S. Eastern Ave. Bev Greer recommended Sprouts Farmers Market at 3365 E. Tropicana Ave.; there’s another Sprouts at 4020 S. Rainbow Blvd. And Jane Karadbil recommended Whole Foods Market, which has four locations in the valley. …

For Bob Kila, who’s looking for Durkee Famous Sauce, Ann Brown and Allen Taylor reported finding it at Glazier’s Food Marketplace, 8525 W. Warm Springs Road. And Karen Hadrick advised Kila to check his local Wal-Mart store, adding, “if they don’t have it he can order it online and pick it up at the store.” …

For Norman Ilchene, Ann Kaiser emailed, “Trader Joe’s is my go-to place for great cheese, including blue Stilton.” …

For Ray Stokes, Dee Hopkins said Chili Man chili packets and canned chili are available at www.ChiliMan.com (888-824-4554) — which I have to say is a pretty funny website. …

More on egg foo young: Brown recommended the one served at New York Chinese at 3545 S. Fort Apache Road. …
