I hope this post isn't outside the terms of reference of FBS - almost all the posts I see are on technical and marketing issues and I wouldn't want to receive another caning from Headmistress Breach.
A Wall Street banker (!?!) has written to me asking if I can help him find a NY source for mitha ittar, which is an edible perfume something like kewra extract and a speciality of the Avadh region of northern India. I'm usually pretty good at web research these days, but although I've been able to find some recipes that use it and some references to it being worn as a male perfume at Eid, I can't get any further. Knowing that there are so many great Indian gastronomes as members and readers of FBS, I thought someone might be able to help me provide this chap with an answer to his search.
