Lamb Loin with Carrots & Cumin

Remember this? This is exactly the same thing, but in a different format of plating!

Sorry that I haven’t been blogging. I started a new job in December and I have been very busy and tired.

Duck with 5 Spice

This was the second and main course to my Friendmas dinner of 2017.

Here is Roasted Duck Breast, 5 Spice Duck Leg Confit Spring Rolls, Celeriac Purée, Pommes Fondant, Shanghai Bok Choy, Shimeiji Mushrooms, Carrot Ribbons, and 5 Spice Jus.

Duck Breast with Carrots & Cumin

Remember Lamb Loin with Carrots & Cumin? This is exactly the same dish except instead of lamb loin, it’s duck breast.

Here is Roasted Duck Breast with a Heirloom Carrot, Carrot Cumin Purée, Pickled Mustard Seeds, Coffee Soil, Meat Jus, and Micro Parsley.

Which presentation do you like better?

Lamb Loin with Carrots & Cumin
