Winner of Ott, A's Iron Chef Challenge: Duck

Photobucket

There were 26 delicious recipes posted during January's "Iron Chef Challenge" with Duck as the themed ingredient. Guest Judge Scott Swaidner from Maple Leaf farms had a tough time picking a winner. The recipes, pictures, and stories of families eating duck (in some cases for the first time) were of such quality and creativity that Maple Leaf Farms decided to award two prizes; a 1st place and a runner up. The winner will receive the $150 worth of duck products and the runner up will receive four boneless duck breasts.

Ohhh MY! I was just sharing with my daughter how much I want to make duck breast for her husband. (Visiting her in Texas as she gives birth, maybe today, to my 1st grandchild!) So I checked out your blog and there was my name as runner up. I AM sooo honored! I enjoyed the Maple Leaf Farms duck recipe contest in more ways than I expected. The experience of cooking with duck really boosted my confidence in cooking and eliminated my fear of cooking duck! Very appreciative! YUM ~ more duck fun ahead!
