Where do you buy pistachio paste? It is not stocked by Tesco or Sainsburys. I could only find it online at Amazon and it's very expensive!

You will most likely have to get the paste online and there are a variety of suppliers, varying in price. We got ours from Sous Chef: http://www.souschef.co.uk/pure-pistachio-paste.html However if you put 'pistachio paste' into Google, there are smaller jars available which cost less.
