duck eggs and other eggs

zorgclyde | May 23, 2006 10:40 PM

A trip to Chinatown today led me to buy some duck eggs (actually, preserved duck eggs).
I absolutely adore these eggs, as I find duck eggs to have slightly more flavor, and upon my roommate's puzzlement, I have a question: Why are duck eggs not more popular in european/american cuisine?
Ducks are getting popular these days, and I assume these ducks also lay eggs, so why do I never see them outside of chinese places?

Which brings me also to the general question: do you have a favorite recipe for either duck, quail, or other non-chicken eggs? My favorite is preserved eggs with cold tofu, but I also like quail eggs a lot, especially in soup because they soak up the flavors more readily. I'm always looking for more ways to expand my repertoir.
