Friends Don't Let Friends Eat Crappy Food

It's great to have friends who love good food and know how to cook.
Saturday night, we were invited to our friends' place in Candler Park for a wonderful meal.

My buddy got some beautiful breast from YDFM and cheffed up some tasty bites from the cool new cookbook FAT

Pan-seared duck breasts over field greens dressed with a blackberry-port reduction. Served with potatoes fried in, well...DUCK FAT. It was a heavenly meal, full of warm-fatty goodness.

Before the duck, we noshed on grilled, prosciutto-wrapped zucchini over melon "pasta" dressed in a balsamic reduction. Holy shit, that was good.

What to drink with duck...2004 Domaine Pavelot Savigny Les Beaune Dominode.
I don't need to tell you, but this pairing was insanely good. Though the Burg was still quite young.

I highly recommend the FAT cookbook. FAT is your friend.


  1. Oh lordie, that sounds delicious!

    Thanks for the Dylan video link- do you he is the only man that could pull off a hat with flowers and clown make-up? Yeah, me too!

  2. Thanks! It was delicious. Bobby IS the only man who can pull off the flowers and clown paint without losing any credibility or cool.
    BTW I'm linking you all on my blog here.

  3. Fat! That sounds like a killer book!
