Well, Chef Gaudet reports that he prepares more than 1,000 of these little jars each month. If you’d like a try at cooking duck eggs, check out your local farmers’ markets. Some Whole Foods Market stores also carry them. If you can’t find them local, you can order them at duckeggs.com.
A restaurant serving only chicken is nothing new, but virtually all of them have focused on fried chicken or chicken wings alone. There are several new concept restaurants opening that feature chicken in different forms. In New York City, you can get chicken hot dogs at Simply Chicken. You’ll find charcoal-grilled chicken at Fresa’s in Austin and Filipino-style grilled and roast chicken at Pecking Order in Chicago.
