Happy New Year 2016


Black-Eyed Peas are a traditional good luck dish (see Wikipedia) originating in the Southern part of the United States. Duck is traditionally good luck for the Chinese New Year so I decided to double down on my good luck and make Duck Confit Black-Eyed Peas with slow Roasted Tomatoes.duck.confit









I added sliced garlic and chopped thyme to the cut tomatoes and slow roasted them at 250º for about 3 hours. I cooked the duck legs in duck fat for 3 1/2 hours at 325º.  I cooked the black-eyed peas separately with aromatics and then added the roasted tomatoes and picked duck confit and mixed all together.

Here’s to a Happy 2016!
