Please help!

Trying to recreate a great appetizer I had with smoked duck and caremlized onion on flatbread...and desperately seeking smoked duck! I went to Whole Foods, called Foodie's Urban Market, and went to McKinnon's Meats in Davis Square.

Any an all help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!

  1. Pretty sure I've seen it at Savenor's but it might be a sometime thing.

      Yeah, Savenor's has it. But like most everything there, call first and ask. At worst they'll get some for you if they're out.

    2. Actually, if you can find some regular duck breast, you are most of the way there. Smoking duck breast (or just about anything else, particularly if it is small) is pretty easy. You can buy a stovetop smoker for about $50, or even do it in a wok. (If you use a wok, do line it with aluminum foil first.) A fruit wood, like apple or cherry, might be nice for smoked duck...

        WF has frozen duck breasts. I used an electric smoker to make a lovely smoked duck & cherry pressed sandwich.

      2. Not sure in Boston, but Russo's in Watertown sometimes has it and Wilson Farms in Lexington often has it. In both cases I would call first. Even further afield, The Smoke House on Rt 53 in Norwell (I think) usually has it . Come to think of it, John Dewars in Newton carries things from The Smoke House so they either would have it or could easily get it.

        1. Dartagnan is a great source via their website or at stores like Russo's and Savenor's - I did see Smoked Duck Breast at Wilson Farms yesterday.

            sometimes Marty's in Newton has it too.

          2. John Dewar's has it at this time of year, and if he doesn't have it, he'll order it for you. Russo's used to carry it, but no more.

            1. Baza Gourmet, the new Russian store on the Newton/Needham line has it. I have found them to be full of surprises.

              1. As a variant, you could also consider tea-smoked duck from Shangri-La, but you may not be able to get just the breast.
