Oftentimes chefs don’t want to cook another meal when they get home after an arduous 12-hour stretch behind the burners. But throwing together a comforting snack to help take the edge off the day is another proposition entirely. These scrumptious nibbles don’t require a degree from the Culinary Institute of America to make, but they’re worthy of winning a Top Chef Quickfire Challenge.
This week, Cedar’s executive chef Aaron McCloud shares his personal recipe for spice-laden duck cracklings paired with a curry ‘n’ citrus infused ketchup. These crunchy quackers aren’t anything like you’ll find in the chip aisle of the supermarket, but they’re so good that you may not be able to pick up a bag of Doritos ever again.
