Servings: 12

1 Duck Leg Confit
58 Ounces Chicken Broth
1 Kafir Lime Leaf
1 Ounce Porcini Mushroom
1/2 Piece Vanilla Bean
3 Ounces Foie Gras Terrine
4 Ounces Pureed Chestnuts
1 Ounce Brandy
Fleur De Sel
36 Wonton Wrappers
Chopped Chives

  • Remove the meat and skin from the duck leg confit, reserving the bones for the broth.
  • Shred the meat and chop the skin into small pieces.
  • In a skillet render the fat from the meat and skin and crisp the meat and skin in the fat. Set aside.
  • BROTH:
  • Mix the broth, dick bones, kafir lime leaf, porcini mushromms and vanilla bean and bring to a boil in small multipot. Boil for 3 minutes, then turn heat off, cover pot and let steep for 2 hours.
  • Strain liquid through a fine cheesecloth or coffee filter. Wash the pot and return the broth to the pot. Simmer to reduce to about 3 cups.
  • Mix the chestnut puree, foir gras and brandy and mash until it becomes a smooth paste. Stir in fleur de sel to taste.
  • Make ravioli using about a half tablespoon of puree  and one wonton skin folded into a triangle around the filling per ravioli.
  • (Ravioli can be made a day ahead and kept between layers of waxed paper in a sealed container in the refrigerator.)
  • Cook ravioli in boiling salted water until the ravioli rise to the surface. Remove them from the water with a slotted spoon.
  • To Serve:
  • Place 3 ravioli, some crisp duck confit meat, and some chives in the bottom of a soup bowl. At the table pour on about 2 ounces of hot broth. Enjoy!
