A Taste of French - Duck Confit

Duck confit served with mentaiko pasta

The making of duck confit is a laborious one. So it became obvious just to get it off supermarket shelves for a lazy cook like me.

Fine French cuisine do I like? I am afraid I have no such fine taste. This cooking method have drawn out all the natural juices and sweetness of the duck. What's left is just a mass of tender tasteless muscle. I believe the fat used to seep the duck has more taste than the duck itself XD

Give me roast duck, braised duck or even plain boiled duck and I wouldn't miss the confit. No it don't 'fit/feed' me.
