Maple Leaf Farms introduces roasted duck legs
Adding duck to the menu just became easier as Maple Leaf Farms, North America’s leading producer of quality duck products for foodservice and retail markets, recently introduced Roasted Duck Legs for chefs and caterers. The White Pekin duck legs are lightly seasoned and oven roasted until tender and juicy. They are ideal served whole as an entrée with a signature sauce and can be shredded for use in sandwiches, salads, soups and pastas. The fully cooked Maple Leaf Farms Duck Legs bring consistency to a menu with minimal kitchen effort.
Duck is a major culinary trend according to Food Navigators Hottest Trends report and a platform for creativity. Duck’s sophisticated and unique flavor profile brings excitement to a menu and appeals to today’s adventuresome diners.
“The oven roasting process locks in flavor and juices and reduces prep time significantly, allowing chefs to focus on creativity and signature presentations,” said Scott Swaidner, R & D manager about the new roasted duck legs.
