No, not yet, but it was only last Monday that I visited them. I'll contact them next week if I haven't heard. And I'll post the info here, of course ;-)

For clarification - I noticed I forgot to mention that I live in Calgary and that's where the Cookbook company is located as well. It's great that it's available in Edmonton, but that's a bit too long a drive for me just to get guanciale :P

I've actually been after this myself for some time. I was served it at Divino and asked them where they got it. They - and probably some of the other restaurants - get it from Rocky Mountain Game Meats (http://www.wildgamemeats.com). Unfortunately, they do not sell to individuals.

I was talking to the nice people at the cookbook company yesterday about it. They actually carry some of the Rocky Mountain Game Meats products. They don't want to carry too may types as they don't sell much. However, they were going to inquire what the minimum order is and will get back to me soon.

So if we can get enough food enthousiasts together, they can definitely special order it for us. And if we could buy it from them on a regular basis, perhaps they start carrying it as a base product?

Who's in?

(first post - apologies if I violated some of the rules here).
