|The Mantimatic (Image from TasteofBeirut.com)|
I posted my own comment to Joumana asking where – in the United States – would I be able purchase one. (Joumana bought hers in Beirut.) She kindly wrote back suggesting I might find one in an Armenian store in Los Angeles or Glendale, CA. Well, since I live in south Florida, making a trip to California to search for a mantimatic was simply out-of-the-question. Instead I put out my feelers to cousins and friends who live on the west coast. The results of those inquiries were unsuccessful, so I contacted Armenian-Middle Eastern stores and wholesalers from South Florida to New York City to San Francisco and came up empty handed.Now it’s my turn to ask my readers for help:
If you'll recall, my first try at making manti wasn't all that succuessful - it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great, either. Perhaps making dough from scratch and having a precise cutting device, would improve my next attempt.
With that in mind, can anyone reading this PLEASE tell me where -or- how can I purchase a mantimatic?
Any thoughts and/or information regarding a source would be greatly appreciated.
