Roasted Duck

I made this last year out of the blue, and my whole family enjoyed it. We had never had duck before, and it was a nice exchange for the traditional turkey. We served it with all the usual side dishes.

Grilled Wild Duck Breast

A simple way to treat SMALL duck - and it's a HUGE hit! It's like having steak. Use the breasts, save the rest of the bird for a stew or stock.

Chef John's Cassoulet

Rating: Unrated
Cassoulet takes a lot of time and ingredients (some hard to find) and uses lots of pots and pans. So why make it? That's easy. Cassoulet is one of the most delicious dishes you'll ever have. Plus, it's great for honing your observational skills, since no two cassoulet are the same, and the times I give are only a guide.

Sous Vide Duck Breast

Rating: Unrated
How about a simple, almost foolproof, stovetop sous vide method that requires no special equipment? Too good to be true? Well, I'm happy to report it's so very true, and produced what my wife and I agreed was the best duck breast we've ever had.
