Market ingredient: Duck from Pepe’s Ducks
Deliciousness: It was ok
Did The Beard like it? The jury is still out.
The purpose of this blog has always been to push me to cook things that I wouldn’t normally cook, whether it be an ingredient or a recipe. More often than not, I’m finding that the dishes on this blog are recipes that I’ve not cooked before, as opposed to ingredients. However this week was to the contrary. Duck is one of those meats that I’ve never cooked and wouldn’t have the foggiest what to do with. I might order it – maybe – at a restaurant, but I definitely don’t keep duck in the fridge to just whip out as a mid-week dish. However, whilst strolling around the markets this week, The Beard was rambling on about some dish that his boss, RR, had cooked using duck. Somewhat inspired by this (that’s right, RR, inspired), it seemed like the perfect week for this gamey bird.
