Summer Fest: Potatoes, Iron Chef-Style

Michael Symon's Duck Fat Roasted Potatoes

Summer Fest 2010We’re teaming up with other food and garden bloggers to host Summer Fest 2010, a season-long garden party. Each week we’ll feature favorite garden-to-table recipes and tips to help you enjoy the bounty, whether you’re harvesting your own goodies or buying them fresh from the market. To join in, check out awaytogarden.com.

Potatoes are a blank canvas—the possibilities are endless. They can be healthy (boiled or baked), rich (mashed with generous amounts of cream and butter) and anything in between. Michael Symon, host of Cook Like an Iron Chef, chooses to go decadent. What does he use to make simple roasted potatoes Kitchen Stadium-worthy? Duck fat, of course!

For chefs, duck fat is liquid gold. When you sear a duck breast (try Ching-He Huang’s Crispy Duck) and let the fat render out, never throw it away. Strain the fat and store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator or freezer for future uses, like Michael’s potatoes. Or, start with duck skin and follow the easy rendering process in the Iron Chef’s recipe.

It’s hard to improve upon nicely browned, crisp-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside potatoes, seasoned with salt and pepper and maybe some herbs. But duck fat gives them a whole new level of flavor. Try any of these simple roasted potato recipes, subbing in duck fat for the oil. You may never go back…unless you’re having vegetarians over for dinner.

It can at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and apply somewhat one thing from their store. I’d want to use some with the content material on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link in your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for your blog post. The things i would like to add is that computer system memory ought to be purchased but if your computer can't cope with that which you do by using it. One can deploy two good old ram boards containing 1GB each, by way of example, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should always check the manufacturer's documentation for own PC to ensure what type of storage is required.
