For the Love of the Game

Mail-order luxury foods

Have you considered serving wild boar at your next holiday dinner? It's a phone call away. Mail-order company and long-time supplier of luxury food items to America's top chefs, Urbani USA has just added a wide range of game to its already top-notch selection of caviar, foie gras, and white truffles. Offerings range from the more traditional Muscovy and Peking ducks to saddle of wild boar and tenderloin of caribou (farm-raised in Alaska). But the real find is the truly wild fowl, hare, and venison hunted on wooded estates in Scotland (the only country to meet stringent ecological rules that permit U.S. importation of meats obtained by hunters). In season until February are Scottish partridge, pheasant, and wood pigeon (wild squab), as well as venison from red deer, whose minute stature and completely natural diet make its meat delicate yet richly flavored. 718-392-5050 in New York; 213-933-8202 in California;
