    I'm interested in trying some Ethiopian recipes, buy many call for a spice called BERBERE. Does anyone know of a retailer in the GTA that sells this spice? I've checked Bulk Barn and they never heard of it. I know that I can make my own but it uses about 10-12 different spices and that seems expensive and bothersome. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Lots of Ethiopian stores on Danforth between Greenwood and Woodbine. Also Bloor near Ossington. Don't know if they have that particular spice but there's restaurants and convenience stores so you might have luck

    I'm amazed that you have all those spices...you must be a gourmet cook. I only have about half and didn't think it was worth my while to buy all those other spices. Best of luck with your Ethiopian cooking!
