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.

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. It has a Middle Eastern flair, with a little sweetness and a little spice.  I like to spoon it over Israeli couscous tossed with a bit of orange and lemon zest, but regular couscous or rice would work just as well.

Maybe it was the Montana air, or the fact that I had walked for so many hours and so many miles to earn it, but sitting down to eat this was a revelation. The sweetness and the saltiness and the dripping fat and the most tender breast meat I had ever sunk my teeth into, all made the perfect combination.

Rabbit can be decadent and delicious, especially when it is braised in Dijon mustard and white wine. On top of all of that, this recipe calls for bacon, making it even more delectable. 

If you just can't swallow the thought of eating a rabbit, subsitute chicken instead.

Buffalo is a great alternative to beef for people who want beefy taste without all the fat. Buffalo also has a sweeter flavor than beef, adding a little complexity to that burger or steak. The biggest problem that people tend to have with buffalo is that they cook it like beef, which cooks for longer due to the thicker intra-muscular fat on cows. Buffalo needs less time and...

Not too long ago in Morocco, I had the extreme displeasure of devouring a sheep’s rich, flan-like breast. It’s a memory seared into my synapses like grill marks on a burger. So imagine my fear when my friends suggested we travel to Flushing, Queens (home to New York City’s...
