Pulled pork sandwiches are all the rage at BBQ joints and food trucks, but duck makes a tasty alternative. Chef Jayson starts with a fully-cooked duck confit product, then layers on a variety of flavorful ingredients for signature touches.

Ingredients

½ oz. olive oil
¼ tsp. minced garlic
2 oz. Marsala wine
4 oz. prepared duck confit, warmed, deboned and pulled
½ oz. fresh arugula, cleaned
2 tsp. minced kosher pickles
1 tsp. mustard vinaigrette dressing
1 ciabatta roll (6-in. size)
1 tsp. garlic butter
2 thin slices smoked gouda cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
Crispy apple chips, optional

Steps

1. Heat olive oil in sauté pan. Add garlic and cook until light golden. Add Marsala; cook until reduced by half. Add warm pulled duck; stir until well coated with mixture.

2. In mixing bowl, combine arugula, pickles and vinaigrette; mix well and set aside.

3. Cut ciabatta in half. Spread garlic butter on both halves. Toast roll lightly.

4. Layer gouda cheese slices on bottom half of roll; spoon warm duck confit mixture over cheese. Layer apple chips and arugula mixture on top of duck. Close sandwich with top of ciabatta. Press in panini press for 2 to 4 min., if desired.

raised garden beds

We have raised garden beds that residents can reserve and use to grow their own plants. Whenever a resident brings me fresh produce from their own garden, I try and incorporate it into a dish. If I do end up using it, I will display the resident’s name and what the produce was next to the dish on the menu.

From DanoneWave Away From Home.

Not so long ago, finding non-dairy milk in a supermarket dairy case was a challenge. But these days, that aisle is bursting with plant-based beverage choices—cow’s milk alternatives crafted from soybeans, nuts, grains or coconut, as consumer demand for these beverages has grown exponentially. According to Euromonitor, worldwide sales of non-dairy milk alternatives more than doubled between 2009 and 2015.

Millennials and Gen Zers, many of them already accustomed to drinking dairy alternatives at home, expect to see some of those same choices...

George Washington University in Washington, D.C., is adding an additional $200 in dining dollars to each student's dining plan this fall, The GW Hatchet reports.

The boost comes just a year after the university switched to an open-format dining plan that allows students to spend their entire meal fund off campus; allowed venues include about 90 grocery stores and restaurants.

While students support the new plan, they are concerned about dining affordability. In conjunction with discounted meal deals that were implemented last semester, school officials hope the extra $200...
