Eating Pressed Duck With Action Bronson

blame it on Meka February 17, 2016

Food. We can’t live without it (both seriously and scientifically), and in another lifetime I became a food critic and renowned chef instead of a music writer. A guy can dream, however…

Anyways, with his new VICELAND series “F*ck That’s Delicious” arriving March 1st Action Bronson continues on with his Rap Game Bobby Flay exploits with this new “Munchies” short.

Action wanted to try pressed duck — or canard à la presse, as the French would say — so we got in touch with Daniel Boulud and made it happen. The dish takes about five days to prepare and is finished tableside in a silver “duck press.” Then, the sauce is made in front of the table using the juices from the duck whisked together with wine, Cognac, and some other agents of deliciousness. Chef Boulud was also nice enough to pop a bottle of 1983 Guigal Cote Rotie for the occasion, and in return, Action told him how to write a rap album.

Must. Be. Nice.
