My husband, Bruce, loves bitter tastes, rich meats and apple pies. This is the menu I devised to satisfy his taste buds for his birthday recently. Duck confit is prepared by brining duck legs overnight, then cooking them in duck fat on a very low heat for several hours. I buy it already prepared at either the butcher shop or a specialty food store. That shortcut makes this a very easy meal.
- Roasted shrimps with savoury crumbs
- Duck confit with bitter lettuce salad
- Sautéed potatoes in duck fat
- Apple purses
