Cosce d'anatra all'arancia - Duck Legs in Orange Sauce

Autumn is in the air, with the first chilly mornings, with the shorter evenings, with the pleasure of staying at home at night. Yesterday, I officially inaugurate the new season by preparing a slow-cooked dish: the duck legs in an orange sauce. On Saturdays I buy my ingredients at the farmers' market, where I find the best duck ever. To get it, I need to be there early, not later than 9 am. Here we are!

I slow cook my duck in the oven for almost 3 hours but I first sauté it in the pan, coated in flour and without any oil in order to remove its grease and get a crispy skin.

Zuppa di spinacini selvatici - Wild Spinach soup

The beginning of September is gloriously fruitful in the mountains.  I like picking wild mushrooms and berries,  without forgetting the last wild herbs, which are still good to make delicius dishes. There are still plenty of wild spinach around, so today I prepare a soup  inspired by a local recipe.
