Personal Notes:
My father in law found this recipe for me the first year I was married. He found out that I like to cook and he loves duck so he put in a request for this dish for Christmas. Being the eager young bride that I was I happily agreed to make his dish… then I started cooking. This recipe is nothing more than amazing but it is certainly a labor of love. It has become a tradition and my love for both the duck and my dear parent in laws have grown through the years.
