Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
My Charcutepalooza experience wrapped up in a final meal. From curing, to smoking this is how I did it.
Chicken Galantine and Duck Roulade were such great temptations, I made both. Aside from the duck, most of the ingredients were local, including the morels. Although time-consuming, I would do it again for both the flavor and unique presentation.
Dreamy rillettes (venison & pork), warming French lentils, and a real nice roast roulade of duck.
In which I roll a few fatties - duck and chicken, that is.
For another Charcutepalooza challenge I made a very sustainable yet elegant Chicken Galantine. A week later, delicious Duck Roulade followed. Time consuming but the results so impressive!
