Where to Find Canned Duck Confit in NYC?

sanangel | Aug 21, 201109:07 PM     12

Bon Jour, Mon Chow Amis!

While on holiday in Paris this summer, it came to my attention that it's possible to buy excellent duck confit in a CAN! Mon Dieu!

Upon returning home to NYC, I began to seek out markets that might carry canned "confit de canard" (as the French call it), only to come up empty handed.

Amazon has it, but only in sizes fit to feed a small army -- and at a rather exorbitant cost. Surely there's a market or gourmet shop in NYC that has this exquisite little item sitting on a shelf somewhere.. right??

To those who might think to recommend Truffette (a.k.a. "SOS Chefs") on Avenue B, I regret to say it is closed.. shuttered.. kaput.

And to those who might recommend buying duck confit from Hudson Valley Duck Farm @ one of the local greenmarkets, I already do (on occasion). I'd like to add a can or two to my pantry for reasons of convenience (plus the excess duck fat the confit comes nestled it -- that's a nice bonus, ay?).

Any ideas? I'm open to traveling to one of the outer boroughs for this, too -- so speak up Brooklynites and Queens peeps!

Thanks in advance!
