Hi Sonja, yes, a whole foods type store would be the best place to look for it.  Here's a good description of it, and ideas about it.  It and tamari are a magical taste combo, way yummier together than separate, and it's my favorite popcorn topping.  (Do Swedes, or any Europeans, eat popcorn?)

Oh, thanks for this link!

I have a big whole food store nearby, I'll take a look there one of these days. Even if they don't carry it, they might be able to get it for me.

Popcorn?

Oh yes, we eat popcorn in Sweden. It's not a favourite of mine exactly, but when my son was young we used to have it sometimes.

Never had it with cheese though. Only heard about popcorn with salt.

Elle, I found the nutritional yeast!!

In a whole food store, just as I thought.  :)

But they were sold out of tamari....  ::)  But that I can find somewhere else I'm sure.

  Ann Marie and I are cooking for friends (John Gallagher is coming!) and I can't wait to chow down on all the good homemade stuff.  8)

That sounds like a wonderful feast and terrific company! I'd love a report of your dinner!

What a meal!  8 people altogether; interestingly, no couples, 4 men, 4 women.  Around 5:00, we started with shrimp with cocktail sauce and veggies with spinach dip.  The main meal was a beautiful brined kosher turkey, sausage and cornmeal stuffing, mashed potatoes with lots of butter, pan gravy, Brussels sprouts baked with fontina cheese, butternut squash lasagna, cranberry relish with orange zest, cranberry sauce made from whole berries and walnuts, pearl onions in balsamic vinegar, cranberry-pecan rolls, wheat rolls and buttermilk biscuits.

Dessert was a beautiful walnut cake with maple butter cream frosting from Cupcake Cafe, compliments of John Gallagher (we belatedly celebrated the birthday of my friend Bev), apple pie, pumpkin pie, ice cream and whipped cream.  John also made the most of the walnuts adorning the fruity centerpiece.  ;D  We also shared a bottle of Veuve Cliquot champagne and lots of other good drinkies.

Ann Marie and I cleaned most of it up after dinner, then spent Friday "laying like loxes", enjoying the clean apartment and the fridge full of leftovers.  We both were nursing sore backs and muscles from all the cooking and cleaning!  :P

But I can't help wondering about a few details.....

Of course it's nobody's bussiness but yours, but excuse me for asking: why bother with a kosher turkey??
