    Default snack

    Rough chopped duck confit fried in an iron skillet and drained.
    Skillet wiped down to reduce excess fat. Oaxacan queso, minced
    jalapeno, and duck added to the skillet over medium heat. Corn
    tortilla laid on top. Fried till cheese began to brown. Flipped over
    so the tortilla could brown. Cut into quarters, drizzled with lime
    juice, sprinkled with minced radish.

    Midnight snack extraordinaire.

    What... no potatoes fried in that duck fat with some garlic?!
    Scandalous!! I suspect the Cabal (TINC) is not going to be happy.
    You'd better take some care.

    I'll watch my back. Somehow.

    OBFood: An Italian friend here served speck as part of an appetizer
    tray at a dinner we attended recently. His was very lean and smoked.
    Anyone interested in the Dallas area can buy it at Jimmy's Fine Foods
    located at Fitzhugh and Bryan just down the street from the Asian
    vegetable patch and shop.

    Two things about the Asian vegetable patch: 1. I once asked a woman
    there what was the English name for a plant she was selling. "I don't
    think there is an English name for this." And 2. The sign at the
    entrance says it's supported by Heifer International.

    It likely was "Speck dell'Alto Adige", South Tyrolean speck with a
    protected designation. They did a fabulous job of getting their product
    known the world over, but I have to say that the product itself is
    nothing very special. It also tends to be very tough indeed.

    Next time ask her for the name she actually calls it and maybe you can
    find the plant by browsing here:

    I have no idea whether you are right about the origin or the Tyrolean
    provenance of Sal's offering to us. However, if this was nothing very
    special, then the special speck must be very special indeed. What I
    ate was mild, velvety, subtlely smoked and quite tender. Sal, who
    lived for 20 years in the Lake Como region, was happy with it.

    Incidentally, you will be cheered to learn that I am about to slice
    potatoes in advance of frying them in duck fat. The last of the
    confit went into my noon quesadilla, and the fat is just hanging
    around morosely in the kitchen without its erstwhile companion.
    Putting it to work on potatoes seems the kind thing to do at this
    point.
