I served them in a Spanish feast at K&Q Fencing Champions in January 2003.  I used split dried favas, which I bought at the International Food Warehouse in Lodi, NJ.  They did not have hulls to be removed, but did require parboiling to take away a certain bitterness.

I can also get canned favas, and (frozen) green fava beans; neither is cost-effective for cooking in large quantities.
