One duck + six guests = One special dish needed

dmd_kc | Aug 23, 2009 09:17 PM

I'm planning a dinner to celebrate my impending kitchen redo. I have a duck in the freezer that I'd like to put to use that night, but I will have six people at the table. Obviously, roasted duck as the main course is out.

My initial idea was a first course: ravioli, served two or three per person in a very rich, super-clarified duck broth studded with tiny balls of carrot, zucchini and turnip.

Then I also thought about taking the easy route and just making a little batch of duck rillettes to pass with the aperitif. A little cliched maybe?

Your suggestions?
