Confit is an increasingly popular but traditional French way of curing, cooking and preserving meat. I can’t believe I lived so long without making it before. It always sounded like it was too much work. Then our friend Carl was over helping process our ducks and shared his passion for confit. We made up our own confit duck and loved it. I decided to try some confit chicken for a family Christmas party and it turned out FANTASTIC. This takes a bit of planning ahead, but is a fairly simple way to make lots of fantastic food!

Jack's Fusion Beef

We live 35 minutes from the closest co-op grocery store, so when we find ourselves with no food in the house we can't just run out to grab something. Instead, we have to get creative. We like to think of it as our own version of food TV competition: what can we make with a random assortment of on-hand ingredients? This time it was Jack's turn and the dish was fantastic!
