Reduced Shipping Costs

Many of our ingredients are perishable and therefore by necessity, require FEDEX Standard Overnight shipping. There is no way around it - it's costly, and understanding shipping calculations practically requires a degree in actuary science!

In order to help defray your cost of shipping, we have incorporated shipping discounts for many of our finer ingredients. These ingredients are noted on the web site and the discounts will be automatically calculated when the ingredient is added to your cart. These discounts are cumalitive, so you could end up with very low or no shipping charges. (dependant on your location)

The best part is that you might as well add that extra pound of mushrooms, a bottle of truffle oil, some pasta or your favorite "pantry staples" because the shipping costs may not even change!

How to Prep/Store

Enjoy within one week. If you will not enjoy them by then, freeze for later use (we recommend the use of a vacuum sealer with heavy duty freezer bags to protect your squab). Again, simple preparation will allow the taste of this unique bird to shine through.

Recipe Ideas

Squab is a true delicacy in the bird world. Roast whole for a special table presentation. As with most specialty poultry it is best served medium to medium rare. Roast quickly in a high heat oven at 400 degrees. Serve roasted vegetables and a earthy grain such as wheat berries or farro as wonderful complements.
