Happy Boxing Day! Yet another kinky advent calendar done and we’re back with the new regular schedule. There probably will be a post for every day this week just because there are so much catching up to do, but after this week, I wouldn’t guarantee a daily post. It’s Boxing Day but also a Monday, and Mondays are reserved for foodporn entirely. First Foodporn Monday, here we go.
The Delicious Duck. Every time I eat duck, I have to wonder why on earth I don’t have it more often. My parents are very good at cooking a whole duck, my dad’s specialty is the traditional Cantonese roasted duck and it’s a rare treat. My mom’s masterpiece is the sweet and sour duck stew, and that is also a rare treat. So in front of my parent’s masterpieces, it’s understandable why I don’t cook it myself. But then I got a craving, so I got myself two fat piece of duck beast with the glorious skin still attached. Just in case, I followed the steps of Gordon Ramsay’s simple recipe of duck breast. The man is not only my favorite dirty mouth celebrity chef, his recipes are one of my favorites. They might not be for beginners cos chef Ramsay already expects you know the basics of cooking, thus his recipes are short and to the point. Anyways, the duck breasts turned out delicious. And I didn’t waste that heavenly duck fat, I cooked couscous in it. And then some stir-fried green beans and paprika plus grilled carrots (which taste like sweet potatoes). And because I was so tired for making all of that, I just warmed up some red wine sauce from the carton. And this combination is crazy good. 😛
