Duck with Orange Gastrique
There are a lot of recipes that I come across that I can’t cook because I have no idea where to get some of the ingredients. But when I came across this recipe, I became so determined to find a way to make it. The problem was, I had no idea where to find duck breast. So I called around and of course, Whole Foods comes to my rescue (that place has everything!). They had fresh duck breast that had never been frozen so I told them to place one on hold for me and I rushed on over. The duck was prepackaged, had 4 breasts, weighed 1.5 lb, and cost about $18. It was a bit steep but with fresh, high-quality duck breast, I can’t complain.
