    I’ve made this recipe 3 - 4 times now and it’s truly delicious and not too much fuss. You can cut the time way down (as suggested) by roasting the duck and flour the day before. Just be sure to skin he duck when it’s warm. I also think the flour needs more oven time than called for. The color of peanut butter or a bit darker gets the depth of flavor in roux. Fresh Andouille and fresh bay leaves made this last double batch amazing.
