Instant Gratification

I like cooking because of the instant gratification of creating a product. My new class garde manger is most definitely not that. Our first day “cooking” last week, my partner and I didn’t end up finishing anything. We broke down ducks, brined the breasts to be smoked and cured the legs to be cooked confit style. I then spent the rest of the class pickling cucumbers.

The duck breasts should be waiting for us to be smoked tomorrow and another class took care of our duck legs. The chef told us the duck legs would be stored in duck fat over the weekend. So much for instant gratification…
