Houston - Fancy pork fat
I've got a few complicated recipes up my sleeve this holiday season and need to find either pork caul fat (that white webby-looking membrane that you may have seen wrapped around roasted meats on TV) or thinly sliced fatback. This may be a stretch, but does anyone know where to buy it in Houston? I've called major grocery stores and a handful of specialty butcher shops but none carry it and most don't even know what I'm talking about.
This sounds like the kind of thing you'd find at Fiesta. Mi Tienda or any of the Mexican meatmarkets. I'm surprised you've having so much trouble finding it.
The chefs at Feast (www.feasthouston.com) Richard Knight and James Silk, use this type of pork fat in some of their dishes. Someone there might be able to help you source it. Good luck!
