Okay, here it is, the menu from this year’s Duck Day extravaganza. The planning took place last week at a dinner at Journeyman, at which Scliff said “Why don’t we do Mexican or Southwestern?” To which corwin and I said, “Okay!” It’s a cuisine we hadn’t done for a Duck Day dinner party, but we’ve [...]
