Duck legs - where to buy in Los Angeles - moved from Home Cooking board
I was interested in trying the recipe recently published in the New York Times for Duck Confit made without duck fat. Unfortunately I can't figure out where to buy duck legs. I know I could buy whole ducks, but to be honest I don't relish the idea of buying four whole ducks just for this recipe. I had my hopes pinned on 99 Ranch, but they don't carry duck legs either fresh or frozen. I'm thinking of trying Harvey Guss, as I am told that they can get anything you order.
Also, would prefer not to order online.
I know duck breasts are available at Bristol Farms. It would stand to reason that they have other body parts, yes?
in our meat market the price of a duck breast is very close to that of a whole duck. the marginal cost of the legs on a whole bird is very low, so i'm happy to do a smidge of butchering at home.
I don't know for sure, but try phoning Puritan Poultry in the farmers market at 3rd and Fairfax.
