What Are Chefs Cooking with Duck Legs?

We love sharing photos of our products that chefs post on Instagram. Lately, we noticed the under-appreciated duck leg getting some love. We scrolled through our feed (getting hungrier by the minute) to see how many dazzling duck leg dishes we could find. Here are some highlights to inspire you to include duck leg confit or roasted duck legs in your next meal.

Do you cook duck legs at home? Or do you prefer duck breast? Tell us in the comments.

The name (revolver) refers to the constantly changing menu at this unique restaurant in Hamtramck, MI. They work with a revolving cast of guest chefs who are responsible for designing, sourcing, and preparing the meals that are served communally on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. What a beautiful plate this is!
