Fall is Duck Season! The Beauty of Duck + A Duck Magret Recipe

Fall is Duck Season! The Beauty of Duck + A Duck Magret Recipe

Duck is definitely an underrated meat option in America, where the chicken and turkey reign supreme at the dinner table. And that's just wrong! There are so many delicious possibilities with duck, from a crispy-skinned magret to a fall-of-the-bone duck leg confit.

Perhaps it's that people seem to think that cooking with duck is fussy, complicated and too "gourmet" for them, and nothing could be further from the truth; duck is simple and incredibly versatile, and all it takes is a pan, a little prep work and some tips to get the satisfaction of a beautifully browned, crackling crispy duck breast, every time. Right now is the perfect time to give duck meat it's fair time in the sun, and cook something different tonight!

Duck Magret

Although there are many different types of duck, the most common are Moulard and Muscovy, as well as the classic Peking so used in Chinese cooking. But there's something incredibly French about duck, and not in a sophisticated and exclusive cuisine sort of way, but more of a rustic, comforting and hearty type of cooking. The flavors of duck magret are earthy and rich, and when cooked, the rendered fat gives it a luxurious mouth feel that has little to do with the price of the dish.

Especially during the fall months, when we're veering away from grilling and salads, duck makes for a fabulous transition, adding richness without heaviness (which we won't need till the winter), and pairing wonderfully with orchard fruits like apples. When cooking duck magret, save that flavorful rendered fat - you can sauté the most amazing potatoes of your life with it!
