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.
more or less known as "Gendarme" ... I know they have it at Hamel; I would imagine that they also have it at "La Vieille Europe" on St-Laurent.
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.
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!
