Where to buy duck fat and truffle salt in MSP?

Hiya, I've been googling like crazy, and I can't seem to find a specialty food store in the Twin Cities (St. Paul, specifically) where I can buy truffle salt and duck fat. Any suggestions?

Many thanks!

  1. Maybe for the duck fat call Heartland http://www.heartlandrestaurant.com/in...

    Truffle salt, maybe Buon Giorno?

    1. Clanceys has frozen duck fat for sale. In the same freezer as lard and stocks, towards the frozen meat. I've had good luck with them. Who know's maybe they have truffle salt too, they have a few specialty items. Have you tried Great Ciao?

        Don't know about the truffle salt. But my SO has bought duck fat at Clancy's a number of times for confit. I'm quite sure it was fresh. I would call them. I suspect they get it in on a regular schedule and you could get it fresh from them when it (the fat or the ducks) comes in.

      2. Annona Gourmet sells black truffle salt and lots of other specialty salts. It is in mpls but not far from roseville.

        1. Surdyk's probably has truffle salt. They have truffle butter. And pretty sure duck fat, come to think of it. Lund's, Byerly's and Kowalski's might have something for you as well.

            Lunds Uptown has truffle salt - just saw it there last week on the cheese counter.

              Heartand Deli does carry duck fat and other little specialties like high-fat butter from Hope, gláce, court bouillon etc.

            2. Surdyk's has both. Call and confirm about the duck fat though, they don't always have it (Clancey's does however).

              1. heartland's market area definitely has duck fat (as well as duck stock, i believe.) penzey's on grand ave probably has truffle salt.

                  Oh, yes! I'll bet penzey's has the truffle salt. Well done!

                    Besides the Penzeys St Paul location there is one on Hennepin and Lake, and one in Lakeville.

                      Williams-Sonoma has duck fat in stock (for the first time, as far as I know).

                      1. re: MrStPaul

                        my W-S has both duck fat and truffle salt...

                2. I've purchased duck fat from both Heartland and Clancey's in the last few weeks.

                  1. They sell duck fat at the downtown Mpls Whole foods location.
