  • Warm salad of lentils & duck confit (Salade tiède de lentilles et confit de canard)

    • Bloominanglophile on April 09, 2020

      About a year (or so) ago, I bought 6 individually packaged confit duck legs at Whole Foods and stashed them in my freezer.

This is a fairly simple dish--just reheating the duck legs and making a pot of lentils and a vinaigrette to finish the dish.

Publishers Text

Real French home cooking with all the recipes from Rick's new BBC Two series.

Over fifty years ago Rick Stein first set foot in France. Now, he returns to the food and cooking he loves the most … and makes us fall in love with French food all over again.

Rick’s meandering quest through the byways and back roads of rural France sees him pick up inspiration from Normandy to Provence. With characteristic passion and joie de vivre, Rick serves up incredible recipes: chicken stuffed with mushrooms and Comté, grilled bream with aioli from the Languedoc coast, a duck liver parfait bursting with flavour, and a recipe for the most perfect raspberry tart plus much, much more.

Simple fare, wonderful ingredients, all perfectly assembled; Rick finds the true essence of a food so universally loved, and far easier to recreate than you think.
