Dallas - In search of Demi-Glace

Does anyone know where I can find a Veal based Demi-Glace in Dallas?

  1. Strangely enough, try calling Rex's seafood on Lover's near Inwood. They make their own stocks, including veal. I don't know if they make demi-glace, though.

      The best solution ... if you don't want it make it yourself, is to visit Rex, chat with them about how they make it, and if that passes muster, buy a bunch, take it home, and reduce it yourself. The jarred varieties are expensive, and in my experience, not really wonderful. Veal demi is a problem for the home cook ... but you could always "syndicate" the 50# lots of veal bones that commercial meat purveyors sell - that is, split the box among friends - and make your own.

    2. Central carries Demi. You could of course always make your own, it's not all that time consuming. I personally have made a Lamb Demi-Glace several times. I simply keep the trimed part off my Lamb shanks.

      1. You could always make your own and freeze it? Get it going in the morning and leave it on low all day on a saturday.

          1. Call the Black Forest Bakery in Dallas and ask them. You could also try German in Colleyville.
