The The Bakers Dozen: Where to buy nougat?

Did I miss a step? I am looking for a place to buy nougat? I had posted a message earlier and have not received a reply. Am I posting this wrong?

You didn't do anything wrong, maybe know one has a answer for you. I don't, I make my own. Then sometimes if people think you're asking in a demanding way they also will not respond to that.

I don't know what type of nougat your looking for. Are you using it for a garnish or cluster to your choco. Why wouldn't you make your own if your talking about a finished product?
Let us know what kind, brittle, chewy etc. If your talking of an ingredient or additive than I don't know.

I was looking through a book called The Chocolate Bible by Christian Tenbner. The nougat was used to make the centers of chocolate covered candies. It was stated that making nougat took alot of technical effort and was not worth it since it could easily be purchased.If can be made, where can I get the recepie. I also did not realize it came in different types.

P.S. It was not my intent to post that request so many times. It was my first attempt.

Thanks, Mike

very few people in this forum will be critical for postings and spelling.
Ask W.DeBord for his recipe and see if you can make it. I can give you a recipe for Nougatine, this is fairly simple.Check with your upscale candy retailers. are you in the US, and what part?
Ciao, Panini

Thanks! I am in the Ft Worth, Texas area. I have tried places like NY Cake & JB Prince. Neither had any. Making it should not be a big problem. I was just going what was said in the book I was reading.


P.S. To W. Debord, If you would share your recipe, I would appreciate it.
