What is so special about Muscovy duck?
Originating in Brazil, The Muscovy duck (Cairina moschata) is raised for its well-flavored meat. The Muscovy duck is now Europe's most popular breed of duck, especially in France. Since they need no protection against cold weather, the Muscovy develops little fat and is by far the leanest domesticated duck, with 30 percent less fat than Pekin duck. Serve it hot as an entrée, cold in a salad, or toss it into everything from pasta and risotto to gourmet pizza, Muscovy duck is incredibly versatile.

Duck Moulard- Magret - Black Angus

Not to be confused with Mallard, The Moulard duck (Cairina moschata X Anas pekin) is a cross between a Muscovy male and a Pekin female artificially bred to produce foie gras. Serve it hot as an entrée, cold in a salad, or toss it into everything from pasta and risotto to gourmet pizza. In the eastern United States and Canada, large and firm foie gras is produced from Moulard ducks. Large moulard ducks are the foundation of Gascon cuisine.
