Holy cow, this is the first time I have returned to this thread since the first 3 posts, lol. I had no clue so many people ordered, that is awesome. To everyone that said thanks, you are very welcome.
I got my Moulard duck breast 2 days after I ordered it, I was really impressed. I missed the ups guy when he came and got one of those slips on the door. I have this thing, I can't stand missing free UPS shipments, lol. So I was kind of bummed, then about 8:30 or 9pm the UPS guy came back and delivered my duck!
It came packed in the same way as everyone else's. Inside of a styrofoam container between two ice packs. Mine were slightly thawed due to missing UPS the first time. I haven't cooked it yet, probably will on Friday. I've had Moulard duck before and it is pretty tasty. I think I will most likely score the fat and pan fry it. Supposed to be really good when cooked that way. Just have to be careful and not over cook it.
cthrall: The duck was on sale at gilt.com about a week ago. Everyone had signed up to get a free $20 credit and (I would assume) referred 10 uh.... "friend's" email addresses to get free shipping in order to get the duck. The sale is over so the duck is no longer available, sorry. If it's any consolation I will toast to you while enjoying my duck breast, lol.
Chris: I was kind of wary about getting mail order foie gras, after reading through this thread, I kind of wish I had ordered that instead, sigh.
