Many restaurants will deceive their customers in order to turn a profit. I dined at The Chelsea, a semi-upscale restaurant in New Bern, NC. I ordered the sea scallops, only to get served Skate. I complained, refused to pay for my or my wife's order, and asked to speak to the chef and manager. The manager complied, but the chef hid in his kitchen. While leaving, I announced, "Anyone else who ordered the scallops, you got Skate, not what you paid for".
Anyone else have an experience where a restaurant deliberately ripped you off?
Duck has been on sale for under two dollars a pound, and I've been trying to make that perfect duck with extra crispy skin, but not overcooked.
I've tried steaming the duck, then roasting it. Result: Skin not crispy enough, duck meat cooked perfectly.
I've tried boiling the duck, then roasting it. Result:Skin crispy, duck meat overcooked.
I've tried roasting it. Result: Might as well have roasted a chicken.
Now, I've received nothing but compliments on my duck dishes, but it's just not up to par for my tastes. I own a small catering company, and I'd love to serve a perfect duck for my clients who hire me for "date dinners".
All suggestions are welcome, and thanks in advance for your input.
