Hey gang - I put in New Zealand Veal and the first site that came up was for New Zealand Bobby Veal. Could this possibly be what they mean - maybe Bobby Veal Bones?

Well, I called the expert, Steve Lopponow, at Venison America. "Babba" means "Baby". So NZ Babba Bones are NZ Baby veal bones.

He's actually selling 40Lb boxes of just knuckle babba bones, already cut up into 2-3" pieces for $1.45/lb. And it only costs me $5 to have them delivered to my house in St. Paul. He says "It's prime stuff!".

So, I see more demi-glace coming my way soon!

Daz-
Thanks for the info and welcome to the community. This site is sort of like Harold McGee's books: if you have a question, the answer is likely to turn up- in this case from the other side of the world!

Hope you'll stick around. :bounce:

If the Kiwi's are trying to take over the world, though, I may change my mind.

Kiwis all seem to be very proud of their country, as they should be.

So why would someone from NZ label something as "Babba" rather than using local lingo?
