We all have our own ideas of what is the most delicious thing in the world; this is certainly amongst my top 5.
Finely sliced Duck breast smoked over Beech wood.
Many cut away the fat from their pork chop or their breakfast bacon rashers, but in this case, rather like certain very expensive Spanish hams, the fat is without question the most delicious bit. It literally melts in your mouth.
These tiny slices of heaven are yet another miracle of human invention.
First you take a duck, fatten it for the foie gras, then convert what's left over into Confit de Canard and this Magret fumé au Bois de Hêtre.
I'm not sure if this is available everywhere; but I hope it is.
What gastronomic genius mankind possesses.
