Apricot Glazed Pan-Roasted Duck Breast Recipe Recipe

After our wonderful trip to Italy, we decided to stop in my home country so baby Aria could get to spend some time with her maternal grandparents. We hadn't been to Paris in approximately 9 months; Papa and Maman are thrilled to have Aria at their home! They've been feeding her succulent French meals and today, I decided to prepare Papa's favorite meal: magret de canard.

Maman is very health-conscious, so Papa hasn't had duck since the last time we met. I told him we'd go out for a run after lunch. And to make Maman feel less guilty, I added some fruit to the meat. I puréed fresh ripe apricots and basted the duck with a generous coating of the sweet and spicy glaze. Healthy? Maybe not, but at least we can feel good about it!

Apricot Pot de Creme Recipe

06.14.13 by Jackie

When Lulu and I attended my older sister's wedding in 2007 in Paris, I recall the most delicious store-bought dairy dessert I discovered at my very dear friend Nathalie’s house. We had a lovely dinner and finished the meal with Bonne Maman brand miniature jars of petits pots de crème. But unlike the ones I usually prepare, these pots de crème had a much heavier, thicker, smooth and creamy texture. Unfortunately, this product has been discontinued; Lulu and I searched for it during our most recent trip to France without success.

This is my attempt to recreate that lovely French dessert. The dessert is made with a lot of white chocolate, a fair amount of heavy cream, butter and eggs. I flavored it with apricots from our garden and amaretto to enhance the apricot flavor.

I served the dessert with a fresh fruit salad and a small scoop of rum raisin ice cream for a little temperature and texture contrast.
