Veal kidneys

tomaslank Nov 11, 2009 08:05 AM

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.

    My local asian market (H Mart) often has them. They don't always have every part, but they usually have an assortment of heart, liver, kidney, brain, etc.

      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.
