Notes

The smile that came to my face when I first ate this was like when I beat Joey for the millionth time. The only way to elevate confit is to turn it into rillet, the rich fatty balance of rich dark meat, fat, lemony punch, and sweet and sour combination of capers and blueberries elevates this to something out of this world.Iíve always wondered how to put my own spin on nachos after having that god forsaken ball game bastardization.This is what I came up with and itís by far the best nachoís Iíve ever eaten.
