Restaurant style duck with a side of bulgur and dried fruit come together to create a delicate blend of flavors. Turmeric, prunes, and figs pair with the soy and Worcestershire sauces for a balance between sweet and spicy seasonings.

Finely sliced duck served with a perfectly circular serving of bulgur will have everyone in awe.
