Culinary Explorations and Experiences around LA and the Foodiverse
Wow, has it really been that long since I last blogged?! Must have been the beer floats huh? No really, my life has just been jam packed with adventure and drama. Adventure is starting my yoga teacher training at Yoga Poser and the drama was having my 3 year old nephew undergo surgery. So see, those were very good reason for my blogging hiatus. But fret no more, I am back with lots of good eats, starting with a sheet of duck.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, that is a sheet of deboned smoked duck, vacuum packed with a lovely twine handle, courtesy of my co-worker’s girlfriend who just came back from the Motherland (Taiwan for those of you not familiar with where I was made). Look it’s even won an award which is made obvious by the picture of the trophy printed on the vacuum pack.
My co-worker does the honors of preparing above mentioned smoked duck sheet with a pair of scissors.
However, a knife later proved to be much more efficient.
Look at all that fatty goodness! I couldn’t help myself any longer and helped myself to a couple or eighteen pieces of the smoked duck and it is what heaven is made of, it’s simply delicious. Surprisingly, it’s not as oily or greasy as I have imagined and it definitely had a very intense smoked flavor. it is however, a little bit on the saltier side. Therefore, I imagine this would go well plain over beer or a nice merlot but also would be great paired with a nice cheese or on pizza or thinly sliced and wrapped around dates.my word, the possibilities are endless!
As a resident of Los Angeles and an extensive traveler, Nanciful’s tastebuds have been around the block and then some. This blog will focus on my reviews of local and international dining experiences. These will range from restaurants that break the bank to delectables that can be bought from change found in the couch. The blog will also include my musings of the world, her travels, her wishes and desires and everything else.
I am also trying my hand at cooking. So stay tuned for adventures and experiments from the kitchen.
Some of my interests include spending time with the Hubs, yoga, running, Sweaty Sunday, traveling, eating, reading food blogs while eating, and perusing a menu or cookbook before bedtime.
