Before I became a pastry chef, I made the mistake of not paying attention to the brands of some of the ingredients I worked with. I do remember that there can be quite a difference in pistachio pastes - some are bright green while some are muddy. Others have almost a floral flavor.
Does anyone have a favorite brand they want to recommend? I am waiting to hear back from my vendor to see if I can get samples, but thought I would check with you guys, too. Thanks
