Really into duck and money?

If you know me, you know that I'm REALLY into duck. In my opinion, there just isn't a tastier creature alive.

What alot of people don't know, is that I spent a few years cooking in kitchens ranging from one man hole-in-the-wall bar kitchens to upscale operations where I reported to an executive chef. Despite their perceived differences, they had one thing in common - some asshole yelling at me about food cost. That yelling really sunk in. At home, I scrape mixing bowls with a rubber spatula to make sure nothing gets wasted.

Along the same lines of making more money with less ingredients is this 3 part video. It shows easy tricks on how to turn a single duck into over $200 cash by being creative with every part of that tasty little beast.

Why buy already quartered bird parts? Quarter yourself and save money plus end up with parts for stock!
