Marrow Bones and Foie Gras - where to buy?
- YourBestFriend Jan 22, 2010 11:36 AM
First, I'd like to know what type of bone to ask for from my butcher when I want to grill marrow bones. Also, I've got a place to get grade B foie gras in la crescenta, but where can I find grade A? And how much does it run per pound? I want to get my fix of foie gras recipes in before the ban goes through.
Also - any suggestions on when to use A vs. B grade?
Foie Gras by the piece is usually sold at the Epicure Imports warehouse sale. I think it's about $60 for the package.
The next sale is February 12-13 - address: 6900 Beck Avenue, North Hollywood - phone: 818-985-9800

I've been giving marrow bones to my dog for years. Now that they're a gourmet item, they're increasingly hard to find. I used to find them at the grocery store fairly often, but now it's more of a rarity. Ralph's and Food4Less would have them by the steaks. I have better luck if I venture off to the Mexican neighborhoods where I believe they're used as soup bones.
The ones I buy look like this http://lasvegasfoodadventures.files.w...
but he eats them raw, not roasted.
You should do a Yelp search for the Kosher butchers near Pico/Robertson. I can't remember the names, but I often had good luck at them. You can call ahead, find out how many they have and ask them to hold them for you.
