Christmas Duck

Christmas Dinner
It's time to start planing for Christmas Dinner.
We have turkey for Thanksgiving and with my family one turkey dinner a year is enough.
Prime Rib, Roast Beef or even ham is on the menu.
But let's think of something else.
At the Tour d'Argent restaurant in Paris, duck is served with a numbered tag.
It says, what number your duck is that they have served.
Well, in my house we could start a new tradition,
Tag number 1 for 2013.
When Sarah and I went to The Paris in Las Vegas we had Duck Ola Orange.
I don't remember seeing a tag though.
I was happy to see that the duck was not served with its bill, or feet still attached.
Here is a tour of Tour d'Argent
What goes with Duck?
warm duck confit, baked onion & pear salad
twice roasted duck legs with wilted radicchio and balsamic glaze
jerusalem artichokes roasted in duck fat
hot raspberry souffle with rose petal creamÂ
I will let you look these recipes up for yourself.
Have fun with this and as Julia Childs says,
Bon Appetite
