Duck Fat Popovers

Popovers are wonderful things, crusty and golden brown on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. They're especially delicious made with our Graisse de Canard Gold, which gives them a deep, rich flavor. Serve hot popovers for breakfast with butter and jam or honey, or serve them with meats and savory dishes, just as you would a dinner roll. They also make a great dessert with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of warm caramel or chocolate sauce.

Duck Fat Roasted Autumn Vegetables

Nothing brings out the flavor and sweetness of vegetables like roasting them, especially with the savory richness of our Graisse de Canard Gold. They'll make the perfect side for roasted or grilled meat, game, or poultry--or toss them with pasta or serve them over rice with crumbled goat or feta cheese on top.

Duck Ragu

Ragu, a classic Northern Italian dish, is a thick hearty sauce made with red wine, tomatoes, aromatic vegetables, and, most importantly, meat, usually beef and pork. This version is made with flavorful, tender duck legs, a delicious twist that will bring raves from your dinner guests. Serve it ladled over a hearty pasta like pappardelle, or over garlicky mashed potatoes for a terrific chilly-weather meal.

Duck Sausages on Polenta with Balsamic Sauce

If you think sausages are only everyday fare, you haven’t tasted this over-the-top combination. Creamy polenta has to be just this side of heaven. Topped with succulent game sausages and a tangy-sweet balsamic vinegar sauce, the results are sublime.

Duck with Red Wine Cream Sauce

A special-occasion dish: rich duck with a creamy red wine sauce. Serve it with wild rice and roasted butternut squash with sage for a gorgeous autumn feast!

Duck, Apple & Manchego Cheese Salad

The duck in this fanciful and flavorful salad is poached in stock without skin, making it succulent and low-fat. The same stock adds flavor to the creamy dressing. Those crispy bits of skin, or "cracklings," add a heavenly if not exactly dietetic crunch to the salad. Use as many as you dare!

Egg Drop Soup

Also known as Egg Flower Soup, this Chinese-American favorite is simple, tasty, and comforting on a chilly day. The most basic version is made from just stock and eggs, with a little cornstarch and a handful of green onions for a garnish. We've dolled ours up a bit, flavoring it with garlic, onion, and ginger, and adding carrots, shiitake mushrooms, and thin slices of chicken. The result--delicious!

Farro with Mushrooms and Roasted Tomatoes

Farro, also known as emmer, is an ancient variety of wheat culivated in many regions around the Mediterranean. It has recently become more popular in the U.S. and can be found in many grocery stores and specialty food markets. Farro's nutty flavor and chewy texture combine beautifully with sautéed mushrooms and roasted tomatoes to make a hearty side dish or vegetarian main course.

Fettuccine with Arugula and Shrimp

The peppery flavor of arugula complements shrimp, garlic, and shallots in this simple pasta dish.

Filet Mignon with Brandy Cream Sauce

Tender filet mignon enrobed in a creamy, brandy-scented sauce and garnished with a sprinkle of fresh thyme--now that's luxury! Enjoy this stellar entree with a glass of your favorite Burgundy.

Fingerling Potato Salad

Try this twist on potato salad with a tangy mustard dressing, the fresh flavor of chives, and tasty fingerling potatoes. Simple to prepare, it's the perfect side for grilled chicken or steak.

Five-Spice Brown Rice with Almonds

Chinese five-spice powder is a fragrant combination of ground cloves, star anise, fennel seed, Sichuan peppercorns, and cinnamon. In some versions, cumin and ginger can also be included. Here, the spices warm chewy, tender brown rice, in combination with the flavors of garlic, ginger, sesame, rice wine, and almonds, to create a tasty side dish for pork, chicken, or fish. This rice also blends well with roasted vegetables as a vegetarian main dish.

Flemish Beef Stew

Flanders, a region in the southwestern part of the Low Countries (now divided between Belgium, France, and the Netherlands), has long been known for its fine beers. Cooking with beer is also a tradition there, and this stew, beef braised with thick slices of onion in Flemish-style dark beer, is an outstanding example. Serve it with a slice of hearty bread to soak up the flavorful, savory juices.

Four Bean Soup

A hearty, savory soup chock-full of beans with garlic, tomatoes, and herbs. The perfect antidote to a chilly day--serve it with buttered cornbread and a crisp salad.

Fresh Citrus Pan Sauce

The tangy flavors of oranges and lemons combine beautifully with sweet butter, shallots, and the savory richness of our Glace de Canard Gold to make the perfect sauce for sautéed duck breasts, pork chops, veal cutlets, or chicken breasts.

Garden Zucchini Soup

This very simple, cool and creamy soup comes from an old favorite cookbook published by the Kansas City Junior League in the '80's. The "secret ingredient" is a touch of curry powder, and the soup is just as delicious served warm. It's a perfect way to enjoy summer's bumper crop of zucchini!

Garlic and Mustard Crusted Standing Rib Roast Au Jus

A holiday classic that will fill your home with tantalizing aromas. Carve it tableside, pour a French Bordeaux or a California Cabernet Sauvignon, and let the celebration begin!

Garlic Confit

Cooking garlic very slowly in our Graisse de Canard yields tender, mellow garlic with a deep, rich flavor, plus savory, garlic-infused duck fat. Use the garlic cloves in almost any recipe that calls for garlic--soups, sauces, salad dressings, and more--or slip a few under the skin of a chicken before roasting it. Use the duck fat for things like sautéing or roasting potatoes or veggies. For a real treat, try mashing a few of the garlic cloves with a spoonful of the duck fat to make a delicious spread to smear on a baguette slice or stir into mashed potatoes or cooked white beans or lentils.

Gazpacho

This summer favorite originated in Spain, but has been tweaked by generations of cooks across the globe. Here is our favorite version, full of fresh tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, and red onion, flavored with herbs, garlic, and a splash of balsamic vinegar.

Ginger Sesame Beef with Broccoli

Love "takeout" beef with broccoli? Here's a homemade version that will have your favorite takeout place wondering where you've been: tasty strips of beef and crisp-tender broccoli flavored with fresh ginger, sesame, and garlic and napped in a spicy, savory sauce. Serve it over Asian noodles or jasmine rice.

Gluten-Free Demi-Glace

The classic French mother sauce--now gluten-free. The secret? Our Glace de Viande Gold and a little rice flour. The deep flavor of this velvety sauce is delicious on its own--or with splash of Madeira or Port, a handful of sautéed mushrooms, or a sprinkling of chopped fresh herbs.

Goulash Soup

A hearty serving of tender beef and vegetables flavored with smoky Hungarian paprika and caraway seeds and garnished with rich sour cream.

Grandma Chubby's Turkey Gravy

During the winter holidays, and especially Thanksgiving, our large and extended family would return to our childhood home in St. Paul and celebrate a grand feast together. Great fun, great food, a lot of laughter and sometimes a bit of chaos in the kitchen. When it was gravy time, we all knew to step aside and concede the stove, the whole kitchen, to Grandma Chubby as she prepared her gravy. No distractions allowed - this was serious business! We're delighted to share our version of Grandma Chubby's turkey gravy, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Happy Holidays.

Greek Meatball Soup

Known as youvarelakia in Greece, these tender meatballs flavored with mint, parsley, cinnamon, and garlic are classic comfort food. They're eaten on their own, with a savory sauce, or, as they are here, in a delicious, brothy soup.
