  1. Not a whole duck...that's too easy...I need 6 of them cleaned & ready to cook. Preferably in MPLS or the near Western suburbs.

      I don't know if there are any butcher/fowler questions for MSP anymore where the first answer wouldn't be to try Clancy's at 43rd & Upton Ave S. in the Linden Hills neighborhood of South Minneapolis. If they don't have them in stock, they'll likely have a good idea how & where to special order them.

      If it comes to that (and if your second mortgage is all paid off) you can special order pretty much anything from Byerly's.

        That being said, your best bet is to order them. I went on this "wild duck chase" about a year ago with no success. Muscovy duck breasts are the best. Byerly's does not carry them, or didn't at the time. Dean and Deluca carries a crossbreed which they claim is better. They will ship them right to your door, or you can drive to Kansas City to pick them up, which is what I did. Call ahead to make sure they have them in stock. What a great excuse for a road trip!

        I know that Lund's (and I would presume also Byerly's) carries both whole duck as well as just breasts. They are located in the frozen meat case.

          1. I've seen them in the frozen case at Byerlys.

            1. Surdyk's carries d'Artagnan products and often has duck breast. You can also order them direct from d'Artagnan, and also from Chefshop.com

                If time hadn't been of the essence, I would have had a few added to the Wild Acres weekly delivery that we get @ work...instead I went to Clancy's and I was BLOWN AWAY by their meats. They were sourced from Au Bon Canard in Caledonia, MN from ducks raised for fois gras...they are about 14oz each! and when I slightly rendered the fat (going to finish them in the oven in a few hours) the fois-like flavor was intoxicatingly rich.
