SLOW FOOD = QUICK MEALS
Ready to disrupt the everyday meal ? Switch out your protein source? Taste the nuanced flavors of our capricious fowl: duck. Aux Délices des Bois duck products are hand crafted with honest, locally-sourced ingredients. Traditional, old-world recipes bring grand-mere's kitchen to life in a surprisingly flavor-forward way.
Duck Leg Confit
Confit is a method that preserves and cooks meat by slow cooking it in its own fat. Plump duck legs and meaty hardwood-smoked wings (Drumettes) yield juicy, falling-off-the-bone meat and crackling skin. Fully cooked, reheat briefly. Shred the richly flavored duck for barbecue-style sandwiches, salad, tacos, gumbo, and ravioli. Sub Drummettes for chicken drumsticks.
Smoked Duck Breast
Dry cured duck breast, its fat trimmed for higher yield, is hot smoked over hickory and applewood. Simply seasoned, the ruby hued meat delivers toothsome, aromatic flavor. Feature on a charcuterie platter, enliven a salad, or top pizza.
Duck fat is pure and simple – creamy ivory fat, slowly rendered. It is higher in unsaturated fat than any other animal fat. Use it for foods that require hot spitting mad fry temperatures, such as French fries, fried chicken, and spring rolls.
