Veal kidneys? (sometimes offal isn't so awful)

pasuga | Nov 12, 2007 06:41 PM

My family background is partly English - I'm the only person I know who grew up thinking sauteed veal kidneys and mushrooms in bechamel was a big treat for Sunday breakfast.

Does anyone know a reliable source?

Please don't suggest the North End. I lived there for 20 years and was a regular customer of the butcher shops the entire time. They're wonderful. never had problems ordering any kind of chicken, beef, lamb, veal as scallopine or a roast, but the couple times I asked about veal kidneys they suddenly got a little deaf or had problems with my English.

I've checked out the Super 88 in Allston a couple times but have only seen pork kidneys.

Thanks!
