finding goose fat in Toronto
I am making roasted potatoes for Christmas dinner and the recipe calls for 2 - 320 ml jars of goose fat to fry the parboiled potatoes in so they are extra crispy.
Short of rendering down my own goose where would I find such a thing in Toronto?
many thanks for any tips!
(not Toronto specifically)
When I lived in Brooklyn, a local restaurant had duck on their daily menu; when I asked what they did with the duck fat, I was told they usually threw it out but if I told them in advance, they would save some for me on my next visit. If you know of a restaurant that has goose on the menu or another place which is making ready-made goose to take away, this might work; otherwise, try the butcher.
If you can vary it and use duckfat instead, try the asian markets in Vietnamese town.
