Romantic Thanksgiving Meal: Magret Duck with Foie Gras & Balsamic Cherries

0 24
So you are spending Valentine’s Day at home with your loved one. Here is an alternate Thanksgiving menu that is perfect for your holiday Seduction Meal. 
Our menu includes Grilled Oysters, a succulent Magret Duck Breast with Foie Gras and Balsamic Cherries, String Beans with Roasted Garlic, Lemon and Slivered Almonds, and Pumpkin Dessert Bars. You can start your meal by pairing the Oysters with a bottle of champagne and serve a light red Burgundy, Pinot Noir or Beaujolais with the Duck dish.  
This Duck Breast recipe is out of this world delicious! I found it online at the We are going to use Magret duck breast. Magret ducks are prepared for foie gras so you get a larger, leaner meat than regular duck.  Given the time of year, I could not find fresh cherries, which I am sure would have been the best option. I used dried cherries and used a little less balsamic vinegar as dried cherries are sometimes sweetened. The Foie Gras was a luxurious addition to the duck and the cherries beautifully complemented both. This recipe is a keeper!
