The food of Normandy in France: Cooking & Baking Posted August 19, 2008 If you can't have calves' feet, pig's feet will the closest equivalent. Is there no way you can ask a butcher for calves' feet or order them? Is it absolutely impossible to get calves' feet in Australia?(Not even kangaroo feet?)←Not impossible (but very difficult). I went to the very large central market here in Melbourne and got two types of tripe (rumen and reticulum). Sad that I can't get abomasum here, as I like the flavor. But I was lucky to get any at all given there are about 20-25 butchers in the complex, but only one of them was selling tripe (+ one selling lamb stomachs). Also the only butcher selling back fat and pork skin.Anyway, tonight is the night.
