As we’ve disclosed many times before, Cooler Kitchen is a COSTCO loving kitchen, so we got a little giddy the last time we were at the megastore when we found whole ducks for a reasonable price. We had never tried cooking duck before, although we absolutely love it, and Julie had just watched an online video on pannacooking.com of Chef Michael Anthony making glazed spiced duck. For Valentines Day, we decided to give this decadent recipe a try.
The ingredients list required us to shell out for some new spices that weren’t previously in our pantry. The justification was Valentines Day 2015, and a sense of adventure! Plus, they’re spices and they’ll last forever- when we retire, we’ll probably just be finishing the coriander seed.
Why hello, my plucky friend!
Here she is all sliced up!
Midway through cooking, we drew some of the duck fat that had rendered on the bottom of the roasting pan and used it to roast thin-sliced Japanese Sweet potato to make delicious fries! You can use regular or sweet potatoes as well.
