Tomato Orange Sauce for duck confit

This sauce goes wonderfully with duck confit. It can be served with homemade confit duck legs or those of your favorite duck producer.

This excellent recipe from Madeleine Kamman was published in her book The New Making of a Cook. I am a big fan of Madeleine Kamman and most of her books are part of my collection. Her talents as a chef and author are incomparable and her recipes are all delicious. She has trained a large number of chefs in the United States.

A Souvenir of Madeleine Kamman

When Julian Armstrong wrote her book A Taste of Quebec she asked me the permission to include some of my Quebec recipes including Roast Pork and Yellow Potatoes. Later, Mrs. Armstrong told me that Madeleine Kamman sent her a little note to tell her that she had enjoyed Roast Pork and Yellow Potatoes like the one her mother prepared for her in France! Knowing my enthusiasm for Ms. Kamman’s cuisine, Ms. Armstrong kindly offered me the note that I keep preciously in my memory box.

Reheating of confit legs

To warm the confit put it in a broiler pan, cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350 ° F. To obtain a crispy skin, remove the aluminum foil and grill for a few minutes in the upper third of the oven. It is necessary to monitor frequently because the skin can darken quickly.
