Delicious Cactus Redux

Making SundaySauce’s Andrew Scrivani went searching for a cactus pad in New York. Hah! We get them at our local grocer here in Berkeley, but apparently it wasn’t so easy in a giant east coast metropolitan area.

I visited Mexican groceries in my neighborhood and only found the jarred version of the plant….

I… called a Mexican restaurant in the W. Village that serves Nopal… they had a private supplier…. He never called.

And then he gets an offer of 40 lbs from Phoenix. Oy, that’s a lot of pads.

A very entertaining story, indeed. You can also see one of Andrew’s photos I posted (borrowed…) this week. If I’m understanding this he not only photographs the food, he also cooks it. Now that’s what I call a good gig.
