Looking for Dried chilies and Banana Leafs?

GreggyK | Feb 11, 2013 10:13 AM

Was hoping someone could help me. Planning a Mexican night, I'm going to be grinding up my pork today to make my chorizo, I got my receipe, but it requires a large number of dried chilies that I'm not sure where to find. De Arbol and Guajillo to be exact.

Secondly I'm planning to make a slow roasted pork which calls for Banana leaf to cover the pork while it roasts. I know its not totally necessary but if I could source some I'd really like to try it out.

I'm in Whitby, I know I'm not going to find the banana leaf here, so I'm guessing a trip into Toronto is needed. You think Whole Foods would supply both?
