1. Duck Confit
Duck Confit is a very popular french dish, developed during a time when preserving meat was a seasonal necessity. The word “Confit” is derivative of the French verb confire, “to preserve.” To confit, is to slow cook meat it in it’s own fat, leaving you with EXTREMELY tender meat. Take a chance and give it a try!
2. Bacon-Cornbread Stuffing
We've been cooking together for a while now, so by this point you probably know about one of my favorite cooking rules: Bacon makes pretty much everything better. I was happy to find out, when we were putting together our Thanksgiving menu this year that the rule applies to stuffing, too!
3. Turkish Potato Latkes with Spring Onions
Perfect as a complement to any meat dish, these potato cakes can be made ahead of time and reheated just prior to serving to your guests.
