I would like to try making Dorie Greenspan's recipe for ispahan loaf cake (from 'Around My French Table') and it calls for rose syrup. She says the cake MUST be made with rose syrup (not rose water) and that Monin is the brand recommended by the recipe's inspiration, Pierre Herme.
No mainstream grocery stores carry rose syrup and I imagine I should be checking out some Persian / Middle Eastern (i.e. Ararat International Fine Foods?) and possibly even some Indian grocery stores to find what I need.
Has anyone had any luck finding rose syrup in Toronto? I'm hoping to find a place accessible by public transit, if possible.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
