There are just so many reasons to love eating duck. It's certainly a versatile protein, capable of being fried up into nuggets, stuffed into Chinese pancakes and turned into bacon. That's right, duck bacon! It's also one of the most fruit-friendly proteins out there (no offense, pork), pairing seamlessly with apple, pineapple and even Orangina. You had...

Why are scaly anteaters tasty enough to traffic?
Apr 22, 2013 3:02 pm

Over the weekend, a Chinese boat carrying 10,000 pounds of illegal scaly anteater meat was discovered stranded on a reef in the Phillippines in the worst possible place for a boat full of poachers and their haul: a marine wildlife UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site.

In this recipe, we treat the apples like pan-roasted potatoes. If you buy duck breasts on their own, they’ll probably be larger than those you’d get from a whole duck that you cut up yourself. Keep that in mind as you cook them; they may need a little more time in the pan.

A king has the luxury of being able to order what he wishes, and after a vigorous hunt it’s understandable that he would want a fine boar to consume.

Smoked duck breast pairs wonderfully with seasonal fall and winter ingredients like squash and dark greens. Sliced paper thin, it's a highlight of a great charcuterie platter, and as a main course (especially when prepared by Marc Murphy) you may forget chicken breasts ever existed.

Substitute any antlered game if you feel wild

This isn’t your everyday stew, but it’s perfect for the really cold months and for large gatherings when you have a lot of people to feed.
