Calf Brains in Bay Area

coaxmw May 16, 2007 11:15 AM

Hi, can anyone help me out, I'm trying to find calf brains, fresh or frozen, it doesnt seem like many supermarkets carry them anymore.. Preferably East Bay, SF, or South Bay. Thanks in advance.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen them at Indus Foods' meat counter.

      I think bovine brains are no longer sold due to the Mad Cow thing.

        I haven't seen them for sale, but I just had "Crispy Marcho Farm's Calve's Brain - Wild Asparagus, 'Pain Perdu,' Cornichon and Dungeness Crab Mayonnaise" at French Laundry on Saturday. It was my first time trying it and wasn't bad at all.
