Does anyone know where in Chicago I can get lardons to cook myself? Grocery stores seem to have only sliced bacon, but even thick-sliced bacon does not yield the type of chunks that you get, say, in the Salade Lyonnaise at Le Bouchon.

  1. I would try calling one or more of the butchers recommended in the following discussion topics:

    1. Go to Gephert's Meat Market, Paulina Meat Market or Treasure Island for slab bacon and cut it to the size you want.
