Duck cold cut??

I happened to mention to someone that I was in the mood for some Peking Duck and Gewurztraminer, and they mentioned that they enjoyed some "duck cold cuts" the other night - has anyone heard of this? I've had duck in several of its processed forms, but have never come across a cold cut. I don't even know why one would bother with a duck cold cut...

I had a charcouterie plate with some similar meats and it was quite delicious...

Maybe they mean duck "prosciutto." The breast is cured and then sliced thinly. It's delicious, especially the fat layer.


Do you have any local places that you can recommend?

Scheffler's Deli and Whitehouse Meats at the St. Lawrence Market carry it. The other Whitehouse locations in the city will also have it. Technically you could go to Cumbrae's, Pusateri's, etc, also. It's all coming in from Quebec anyway, just like the majority of other duck products.

Board-O: No need to order from d'Artagnan when we can get all this stuff by basically walking down the street. Besides - cross-border shipping of meat and cheese is a pain in the ass and almost as contentious as shipping wine.
