"housemade" yogurt in East Bay?

Ruth Lafler | May 14, 2003 06:47 PM

There's a thread on the LA board about a Middle Eastern market that makes its own yogurt.

Does anyone know of such a place in the Bay Area, specifically in the East Bay?

I've become addicted to plain yogurt with honey or a dollop of spreadable fruit for breakfast, but I'd like to find a convenient source for good, Greek/Middle Eastern style yogurt. I can get the small containers of Total at TJ's, but they're expensive and I'd rather buy larger quantities.

Meanwhile, I've been experimenting with draining several brands of yogurt -- amazing how much bitter whey you can drain off with a coffee-filter-lined strainer. My favorite so far is Pavel's lowfat -- but I'd rather not have to go through the hassle and waste of draining it.
