Baking pies in Nice- Any advice on finding lard or shortening?

ms.jean | Feb 22, 2014 01:11 AM

It's been such a treat to have such a great community of cooks to learn from as I've adjusted to cooking and baking in Nice. I'm a bit stuck, and I hope this group can help.

I'm baking pies for my husband's birthday party in a few weeks, and crusts require a mix of butter and lard. I can make due with shortening if need be. Any ideas about where I could find either lard or shortening? I thought about asking at a butcher shop, but before I try out my still rudimentary French I figured I'd see if there were other options.

Thanks!
