Roasted Duck

Rating: 4.61 stars
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.

Peking Duck

I have made this recipe and it is delicious. It can be served with plum sauce as well as a fruit sauce. This is actually a short-cut version but it is fantastic.

Duck Rillettes

Rating: 4.8 stars
Duck rillettes is one of the most amazing culinary magic tricks of all time. Even though most of the spread is made up of fairly lean duck meat, by emulsifying it in a little butter, duck fat, and duck gelatin, you'll swear the final product has the fat content of the finest foie gras torchon. By the way, I miss foie gras torchon.

Sous Vide Duck Breast

Rating: 4.89 stars
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.
