Veal kidneys

Any ideas where to get fresh veal kidneys? Have tried pork (good but not great) and older beef (threw it out). Had them in a bistro in Normandy and obsessed ever since. Live near annapolis.

      I'd be very surprised if they are veal kidneys in an Asian market. Much more likely they are pig kidneys. I rarely see veal kidneys outside of a gourmet shop. I know there is a new butcher shop in Annapolis. I think it is called The Butcher Shop. Look them up and give them a call. My guess is they can special order them.

        When I was there in the past, they've had NO offal on hand. Their offerings were mostly expensive aged steaks. Hardley a full service butcher, although I'm sure they could special order them.
