Default Where to Buy Duck Liver

Anyone know where I can buy some duck or goose liver?

Not Foie Gras, just regular duck liver. Can get chicken liver anywhere
but everywhere I ask for duck liver, they don't have it.

I'm in So. Cal.

Thanks

Yellow pages. Look up "meat". Pick up phone. Ask butcher.

Contrary to E. coast perceptions and realities, those things are not
common on the west coast.

In So. Cal. you will probably need to find a source for frozen. On the
east end of Lung Guyland, NY most every stupidmarket sells fresh duck
liver... and many area restuarants serve it in various ways, so why
stink up your house. I love liver, duck, chicken, calves, but I only
eat it out. Hint: liver should only be carefully broiled/grilled (do
not over cook)... any other cooking method ruins it, including saute.
Of course we're speaking ordinary duck liver, not force fed style (a
whole nother story).

Perhaps this will help (a neighbor not an hour from my door), it
mentions a CA purveyer:
http://www.hudsonvalleyfoiegras.com/nytimes.html

They have a store on line (pricey) but again, not plain old duck liver.
I'll stick to the fresh Lung Guyland fare I can get most anywhere on
the east end for the same price as stupidmarket chicken livers, fresh
duck eggs too, same price as chicken eggs by weight. Plenty of turkey
farms near Riverhead, NY... they sell fresh livers and eggs too...
Miklowski's on Rte 25A is where I used to buy my holiday bird. Best
grilled liver with bacon and smothered in onions is served at The
Harborside, Patchogue, NY... usta go for lunch; salad, soup, liver,
fries, and dessert cost $12.

I really miss Lung Guyland food... all these upstate hillybillys eat is
fast food and shit.

In N. Cal and S Cal, you should always include Ranch 99, and other large
Asian markets for something like this. I routinely buy packages of duck legs
for confit at my local oriental market. I'll bet you can find duck liver,
and at a reasonable price.

I assume you're from the West. Open your yellow pages to "meat" and tell me
what you find. If you claim to find nothing, you're either lying, or you
live in a very small town, and your results are the same as any small town,
anywhere.

When I looked for duck livers there, I never could find them. I think
they must be a special order thing.

The other place I look for something like this is a restaurant supply house.
They will sell
to you, though in minimum quantities. At the place I go to you have to buy
5lb duck livers at a time. As I said before, I have found them at local
oriental markets.

What are we supposed to see under "meat" that will take us to duck
liver? You're living in an E Coast world, my friend. If it's so easy
to find, I should be able to walk into my local butcher/chain store
butcher and buy it. That's not the case out here. I'm not lying and
I think you're delusional if you think we can do that.

In the Bay Area I'd ask Magnani. No idea re. Socal, sorry,
but there must be poultry-specialist butchers you can ask.

Fresh duck liver is certainly a treat. Better than any
"California foie gras" I've ever had. It would not surprise
me if, given the limited demand for and, therefore, production of
ducks in California, that the livers are scarce; perhaps
snapped up by restaurants making duck live flan and similar.

duck liver.

I used roasted duck wings for my stock for Christmas dinner.

I feel truly blessed to have access to a good asian market in Austin. :-)
Granted, I have to drive 40 miles, but that's nothing in Texas.

In mine, I find "meat markets". This doesn't mean they'll all have duck
liver, but it *does* mean there are 5 places I can call, and I'll bet at
least one of them will be able to point me in the right direction, since
they know who supplies restaurants.

Sheldon: Try Oscars SMokehouse in Warrensburg. It'sa bit of a drive for you,
but they have quality stuff.
