10 Fabulous Duck Recipes

I think duck meat is very sophisticated. If you've been following my culinary diary throughout the years, you know I don't eat duck often (for health reasons), but I love how succulent and fabulously flavorful the meat is. My daughter Aria is no different. I just bought some duck breast that I'm about to roast for lunch. Since I've already posted countless recipes about this delicacy, I thought I'd gather my best duck recipes for you to see.

Don't forget to save the duck fat; it makes the most wonderful fries or pommes rissolees! Despite the overstated unsaturated fat health claims, for cooking or frying it's a healthy alternative to beef fat, pork fat, palm oil, coconut oil or even butter and it actually has culinary benefits (it has a higher percentage of mono-unsaturated fat that can help lower levels of blood cholesterol). Plus, unlike olive oil and butter, duck fat can be recycled.

Hope you enjoy cooking and tasting duck meat as much as little Aria and I do!

Duck prosciutto (thin cuts of smoked duck breast) is one of my favorite cured meats. It makes the most ordinary of salads extraordinary. The combination of saltiness and flavor from the high fat content is irresistible. When I prepared this dish in Paris, for every slice of duck that went into the salad, one went into my mouth as well. I found a supplier on Amazon and I'm going to try them out because I cannot wait until my next trip to France to satisfy my duck prosciutto craving. This would make a perfect first course for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner.

Dieters, avert your gaze! What started as a few innocent pieces of duck prosciutto turned into full-scale gorging of foie gras, oysters, veal and other French delicacies that left me 10 pounds heavier than I was when I arrived. You could say that duck prosciutto was my "gateway" meat .
