Landjaeger in Mtl.?
Anyone got a rec for a butcher etc. where I can get some good landjaeger? They sometimes have it at Loblaws but I'd like to try some of the more homemade/artisinal stuff if possible. If you have a specific rec for a place, let me know if there's anything else there that's exceptional so I can pick up a few things.
Got my gendarme from La Vieille Europe and it was great, exactly what I was looking for. Also got some from their neighbour's (forget the name!) and I didn't like it. It was an orangey colour (unlike the oxblood colour I am used to) and just didn't taste as good, not as meaty or chewy. That said, I know nothing about this specific item so for all I know the second one could be the more 'authentic' but I def. preferred that from LVE.
I got a mixed selection of charcuterie from the second place as well and it was all excellent, so I'll go back there, just not for landjaeger.
Thanks for all of the tips!
Thank you! I just called La Vieille Europe (it's closest to me) and they have it so I will pick some up tomorrow and also get to Hamel and Cochons Tout Ronds when I can. I'm pretty xcited to try this, I loooove the Loblaws version so if this is yummier then I am going to be happy happy.
Anything else I should get at La Vieille Europe, anything special/exceptional to/by them?
Oh and I asked for 'gendarme' - I assume that's the word to use in QC, thanks for that tip as well.
