Duck and chestnut recipe or ideas?

aktivistin | Mar 6, 2007 09:25 PM

I have heard that duck and chestnuts are quite the match for each other, taste-wise, but I can't think how to combine them. I don't have much experience with either duck or chestnuts beyond Chinese cuisine where I haven't yet tried them together.

Does anyone have a duck with chestnuts / chestnut puree / chestnut bread pudding recipe they wouldn't mind parting with? If it comes down to it, I may make a puree de marrons and spoon it on the side of a seared duck breast just to experience this amazing taste complement.

Also, if you find this combination gross or just plain inedible, please let me know! Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts and suggestions.
