I have never tasted brains, but my grandmother loved calf brains scrambled with eggs.

Constance, brains alone are rather bland..mix them with spinach, eggs, parm,herbs, onions, evoo,parsley, garlic and make into filling for ravioli and they are fantastic...I love them, and at first I kind of dragged my feet about trying them, one bite and I was hooked..I can't handle just a plain spinach and eggs and cheese ravioli now they taste to much of iron ..

Where in the world do you find them, Kadesma? I never see them in the markets around here.

Constance, with the increase in worry about mad cow disease I doubt very much you will be able to purchase cow brain ever again. Anything with brain or spinal column stuff is the carrier.

Constance,
we usually have to order them from the butcher..Since as Alix said the mad cow scare, we sub 1/4 lb. veal, 1/4lb. pork and 1/4 lb. beef, this we mash and mash after cooking to get as fine as possible then add to the spinach, egs, herbs, etc.. To me not as good, but a lot safer, unless I get the brains from my son when he butchers his beef.
