where to buy Duck Confit and duck fat in DC NOVA?
Can anyone recommd a gourmet store (preferably up 270, but doesn't have to be) where I can buy Duck confit and duck fat? Trying out cassoulet this weekend and would like to make it as authentically as possible.
Balducci's stocks both duck fat and confit. They also carry Moulard duck legs which are ideal for making your own confit. Once you start making confit, it's easy because you end up with more duck fat than you started with. And you always have a good supply of confit on hand.
As for the cassoulet, be certain you use real Tarbais beans.
