Second Annual Duck-off Celebrates Quackers

It was another successful cook-off at Jimmy’s No. 43 this past weekend, when professional and amateur cooks convened to support Food Systems Network NYC. Best of Show and People’s Choice went to Susan Palmer, The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen, who presented a foie-gras-infused deviled egg with maple and coffee cured duck bacon. Honorable mentions went to Adrian Ashby (for originality with his Duck Donut) and Gina Keatley (best presentation for her duck risotto). There were several write-ups praising the event, including:
