Canard

It’s the beginning of the year, which means that it’s time to focus on healthy eating. So to kick off 20167’s first Tasty Tuesday, we’re chatting up salads leafy green vegetables, grains, pulses and infinite sadness. Yeah, maybe not. Let’s talk about one of the most ubiquitous dishes in the 70’s; a hallmark of French cuisine, and – when I was too young to know how much it all cost – one of my very favourite meals.

Canard à l’Orange! Crispy roast duck, served with an orange sauce. Fattier and richer than chicken, duck is a bit harder to cook right, but when it is, it transcends that most pedestrian of fowl. It’s complimented perfectly with a sweet, but not too sweet sauce made from reduced orange juice. Crispy skin, juicy roasted meat and that fresh citrus? It may have very much gone out of style, but it’s still sublime.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
