Hmmmm? Some sort of phytosanitary restriction?

Just not much demand anymore. Things like fresh kidneys disappeared about five years ago from the regular grocery store, and even going to a proper butcher shop, you have to special order, wait, and even then, what usually shows up is frozen.

Yep, frozen is the best I've been able to source so far. But I noticed the (wholesaler procured)fresh pancreas my culinary benefactor was using looked of a much higher quality.

He's invited me back to learn how to prepare his duxelle stuffed chile relleno with tequila butter sauce, as well as his incredible veal stock. Perhaps my stellar personality will be enough to persuade him to let me snag a bit of fresh pancreas from time to time.

If not I'll have to play some dirty pool. See, he admitted a weakness for Santa Lucia highland Pinots. Being my favorite as well, I happen to have a "few" of those laying around in the cellar.Angel

LOL! I too have managed to, ah, leverage, a few things in a similar fashion.

Cool
