FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD (Pan fried slow roasted duck; italian cookies; Sushi)

I have never cooked duck before and I really like duck confit.

So today I tried a healthier version of duck confit! No gravy or deep frying involved.

It was panfried for a while with its own fat and then slowly roasted on a medley of veggies.

It was YUMZ

The duck was marinated with thyme and salt, trick is to make sure that the raw duck is as dry as possible. Pan fry over medium heat before roasting. If you want a crispier duck skin avoid ‘water-logged’ veggies like tomatoes!

On friday night we went for sushi to celebrate our 21 months of engagement and passed by this Italian cookie place. We were able to resist temptation and only came out with a cannoli to share!
