Seared duck with mint, coriander and olives

Vancouver, Canada

Hey Ladies!!!

Yes- I’m late. I’m so sorry. Things got the best of me: busy at work, moving apartments AND working out a menu that Anna and I will be cooking as we are going to be one of many hosts for the YVR Dinner Party charity event in March. More about that on a later date.

Even though I’m pretty much vegetarian at the moment- we found this incredible duck recipe in The Herbfarm Cookbook by Jerry Traunfeld (the same cookbook I used for the pork tenderloin recipe a while back.) Anna and I actually reserved a table for ourselves at the restaurant for the end of June to celebrate both our birthdays. FUN! Back to the recipe!

Anna found this incredible recipe for sauteed duck breast with mint, coriander and olives. Ours ended up more “seared” as we were afraid of over cooking the duck…..still delicious.
