I was talking about the trotter.

I wouldn't hesitate to use a properly frozen one in that recipe.

hudson valley said they couldn't sell at the greenmarket so I called around a little and citarella sold me foie for less it would have cost at the meat hook or the hvfg website.

 

I got the veal trotter at ottomanelli and I don't think it hurt the dish.

 

people here probably already know this but buon italia has good pricing on truffles.  citarella had black truffles for 250 an ounce, buon italia had white for 205 and black for 60.

Picked up two items from Fleischer's that were both flat out fantastic. It was going to be a Sunday dinner for 8 but they only had one smallish bone in leg of lamb that was a little over 4 lbs. So decided to go with Lamb Two Ways and supplemented the leg with their Lamb Sausage. Roasted the leg and pan seared the sausages and finished them in the oven for a few minutes. Highly recommended.

Lamb sausage can be a wonderful meal.

I find the gap between the quality of the pork and beef at the park slope fleischer’s really frustrating. the pork chops we had for dinner tonight were really nice and fairly priced, and I don’t think any of the beef I’ve bought there has been really nice or fairly priced. the lamb is closer to the pork, but we don’t buy it as much. the current set of staff does seem less miserable than usual.

I'm relieved to hear you say that about Fleischer's beef.  I thought it was just me.

Won't there always be inconsistent meat at Fleischers because they use different farms at different times, most with different feed, genes, etc.

I think it’s actually pretty consistent, apart from the service.
