Rendered Duck Fat in Toronto or GTA?

  • a
  • 9

Does anyone know where to get rendered duck fat in Toronto or surrounding area? I'm particularly looking for the Brome Lake brand (http://www.bromelakeducks.com/Product...) or La Maison du Gibier. I know I can render my own, but would like the ready made option too, and have been finding duck fat hard to come by in Ontario (it was in every corner grocery store in Montreal). Thanks!

  1. I think Pusateri's caries Brome Lake jars, and summer hill caries a different brand.

    However you can get in-house made tubs from the Healthy Butcher and Cumbrae's... And I don't think its that hard to come by, I have seen tubs for sale in a lot of butchers counters/freezers (Brandt is another one that comes to mind, they also sold Goose Fat)

      I saw small plastic containers of Duck fat at the Downtown Longos at Maple Leaf Square.

        This may be widely available at Longo's - I've also seen this at the Box Grove Markham location. It is indeed the Brome Lake brand.

    2. Whitehouse Meats in SLM also sells it...

      1. Provenance has it (and lots of other great stuff). Palmerston just north of Dundas.

          1. Yummy Market on Dufferin has some as well. Not sure about the brand though

            1. It wouldn't be my retailer of choice (and I'm sure it's overpriced) but Williams Sonoma sells jars of duck fat.

              1. Brilliant. Thanks for all the great suggestions. I am back in TO after years away. It will be fun to explore all these places.
