Duck Anatomy in ‘Menu Régional: Périgord’

Today we paid a visit to the Perigord region of France, situated in the south-west corner of the country. Perigord’s cuisine particularly lays importance to produce from ducks and geese, and yes…foie gras! It is also a truffle area but unfortunately our meal wasn’t graced with its presence.

For the foie gras, we used this humongous duck, the best type for foie gras!

Out comes the foie gras – around 600g

Took over the whole body!
What did we do with all its parts? I present to you the Regional Menu.

Amuse Bouche: Rillettes de Canard by Yiyu

Entrée: Marbré de foie gras de canard aux artichauts, Salade croquante by Carolina, Diyonisis and Sinan

Stacking the terrine

A tiring week but also a reflective one…as school ends in 2 weeks for Xmas holidays! Crazyness! Also Parents come this week so very excited to continue some culinary adventures with them too!
