Duck Dish

31 Aug

This is Jason posting.

So we watched an episode of The Best Thing I Ever Ate on food network.  The show revolves around all these different food stars who talk about the best thing they’ve ever eaten.  Each episode is about a certain type of food.  They had episodes like the best sliced dish, best dessert, best meat etc.  Tonight we watched the Last Supper episode.  Basically what would these celebs like to eat as their last meal.  We watched Ted Allen talk about this duck dish called Canard a la Presse (pressed duck) at Daniel in New York City.  Apparently an expensive dish.  What Ted says is good about this dish is that they give you a whole duck in the dish.  The restaurant roasts the duck and prepares some duck jus.  They wheel the duck out to you.  They slice the leg and breast pieces for you to eat.  Then they take the rest of the duck and put it into this contraption.  There is a wheel at the top to press down on the duck.  They spin the wheel and press the duck so that all its juices run out.  O_O  Who does that?! They take this essence of whole duck and made a super delicious sauce for the duck breast and leg.  Wow.  Yeah, that’s basically serving 1 whole duck to you in 1 dish.  O_O  I can’t believe they put the squeeze on the duck so they can get all the juice from it.  Wow.  That’s amazing.  Seriously, what wouldn’t people do for food?  Dang. I wonder how that tastes… and how expensive it is!
