duck press

In its ongoing effort to introduce America to the pleasures of Nordic cuisine, yesterday’s episode of “New Scandinavian Cooking” offered up “Pressed Duck,” which featured a gravy whose primary ingredient is extracted by use of a device that crushes the throwaway “parts” of a partially-cooked fowl.

Average price of a duck press: somewhere between $2,220 and $25,000.
