Gesiers

Anyone know where to get gesiers de canard/duck gizzards? I'm not even sure what part of the duck it is. (For that matter, i'm still not convinced that the pupek is the bellybutton, as my grandmother claimed, since I refuse to believe that birds have belly-buttons.) Surfa's? Nicole's? Is there some really tony Bristol Farms that might carry them? Ranch 99?

    I would suggest you try special ordering them form the poultry stand at the Farmer's Market on 3rd & Fairfax. And I think it's part of the bird throat.

    never seen them at Surfas.

      I was just at 99 Ranch market in San Gabriel, and they carry them, beautifully cleaned, for $2.69 a pound in the prepackaged organ meats section. I've also seen them at Arcadia Supermarket in Arcadia.
