Lesson 16 – Poultry

Super STOKED since my partner is back! and WOW, what a difference it made.SO! It was another night of poultry! Tonight, we tackled duck & squab. We butchered the duck, braised the legs so it’s nice and tender, & sauteed the breast so all the fat can be rendered out leaving a nice, crispy, skin. ALSO, made a lovely sauce to accompany the duck and wow ..just ..freaking ..CRACK

Also, prepared a some squab ..although the recipe name states ‘quail’. For those who don’t know, a squab is a young pigeon; it’s funny how there are so many pigeons in NYC but I’m SURE no one would eat THAT xD

So yeah, stuffed the squab with a rice & sausage stuffing, browned in a pan, and finished in the oven. The hardest part of the dish?! The damn potato basket ..never had it broke on me SO many times.. Anyway, enjoy the pictures as always.
