See How the Best Duck in the City is Made at Daniel With Action Bronson and Daniel Boulud

Vice’s Munchies channel has a great series entitled Fuck, That’s Delicious in which foodie / rapper Action Bronsen explores food around the world while on tour.

In the most recent episode, Bronson visits Master Chef Daniel Boulud to learn how the off-the-menu pressed duck is made at Daniel.

Action wanted to try pressed duck—or canard à la presse, as the French would say—so we got in touch with Daniel Boulud and made it happen. The dish takes about five days to prepare and is finished tableside in a silver “duck press.” Then, the sauce is made in front of the table using the juices from the duck whisked together with wine, Cognac, and some other agents of deliciousness. Chef Boulud was also nice enough to pop a bottle of 1983 Guigal Cote Rotie for the occasion, and in return, Action told him how to write a rap album.
