Trying to go gluten free in Paris but I can't find xanthan gum or sorghum flour anywere. All my recipes call for these ingredients.I've tried several organic health food stores and no such luck. Any suggestions?

Try shopping online at bahadourian.com. They're based in Lyon, and it looks like they sell farine de sorgho: http://bit.ly/9VyjUo. Gomme de xanthane is even more of a specialty item, and you may have better luck searching shops that cater to pastry chefs.
