xmas eve dinner


Recommended Posts

We are originally from Europe so we do xmas eve just like Mexicans. Roast Muscovi duck. Hungarian bread dumplings. red cabbage and gravy. Oh, and several brands of beer,Czech,Spanish,German and [gasp!] a Chinese Pilsener. Then for dessert English trifle and snifters of Grande Marnier. Got the locally raised 3.5 kilo duck from los 3 butchery. You can get it fresh or frozen.

Did you buy the duck fresh or frozen? And how did it turn out?

The picture shows how it turned out and I bought it frozen because of not knowing what my time frame for making the meal was going to be. If it was not excellent I would have not made this post.

well what can I say, it is proof that  food is difficult to photograph.. The duck looks overcooked.. but then after some Grand Marner who cares..

I never overcook duck,it was juicy and tender except for the ultra crisp wing bits you are probably looking at which i really like that way and as the chef i get to grab one for my plate first. the juicy breast chunks with crisp skin have already been grabbed from the platter. Wild duck that I  shoot,I do rare.

Here is a foto of a fresh one. It's vacuum bagged.
