Marrow Bones and Foie Gras - where to buy?

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?

  1. 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

        1. 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.

          1. Hi folks, Please confine the discussion here to sources for buying foie gras and marrow bones. Digressions about the "ban" and general discussion about foie gras will be deleted. Thanks very much.

              Ralph's still has marrow bones. If there aren't any out, ask the butcher. I buy them all the time.
