The December issue of Saveur magazine has a cover story about our favorite bird: duck. Yes, it mentions us, but that’s not why we think it’s a great piece. Our friend Hank Shaw is also quoted, which is appropriate. His new book “Duck, Duck, Goose” is our favorite book of the season. It’s got all you could possibly need to know about ducks and geese, along with some fine recipes.
It’s really quite easy, as this Saveur video with Ariane proves. Her seared duck magret is a tradition handed down by her father, Chef Andre Daguin, who invented the preparation. Read, watch and then get in the kitchen and make duck!
We love these illustrations Saveur did of our products. This is a really useful breakdown of all the parts of the duck. Everything but the quack.
