How to Cook a Duck



Do you love to order duck in a restaurant but feel intimidated cooking it at home? Most of us can put chicken on the table without a second thought. But preparing a duck is unfamiliar, and what are you supposed to do with all that fat? Chef Chris Schwarz, Executive General Manager of the Tom Douglas Restaurants, has decades of professional chef experience. In fact, he trains our own chefs, sous chefs, and line cooks! If you want to learn how to cook a duck properly, this is the class for you.

Chris will teach you everything you need to know about preparing and cooking a duck from the butchery of raw duck, to carving roast duck, to making duck confit, to pan searing duck breasts, braising duck legs, and using the wings. Enjoy substantial tastes of all the duck-licious dishes that Chris will demo, and go home with all the recipes.

What You’ll Learn: (all recipes are demo only)
