Want to learn all things duck? Join French-trained Camas Davis for an evening of le canard.  With Camas’ guidance, each student will butcher their own duck the French way, with several delicious end results in mind: duck confit, duck rillette, duck prosciutto, duck liver mousse, and more. Once students have worked through their bird, Davis will demonstrate the various ways in which students can cure and preserve their own ducks. After tasting examples of those cured and preserved results, students will go home with plenty of recipes and duck meat to explore on their own at home.
