Individual tickets are $85. For more information, please call 532-6099 or visit


D’Artangan Duck Fat
R. Field at Foodland

I know how it sounds. But I was doing some recipe research on perfect roasted potatoes for Christmas dinner, and I kept coming up with potatoes cooked in duck fat. The Brits are behind the movement, of course, and they do know potatoes, so I decided to follow their lead. I wasn’t sure if I could find it readily available; at one point, my brother suggested buying our own duck and rendering the fat ourselves (this sounded tricky and slightly gross to me). So I made a phone call to R. Field and found out it had duck fat for sale. I used Nigella Lawson’s recipe for “perfect roast potatoes,” and I was not disappointed. The flavor was amazing, the potatoes were crisp and delicious, and what they say is true: Once you go duck fat, you never go back. -Molly
