Duck is a type of poultry with meat that is dark and has a rich, distinctive flavor. It is often served roasted or braised, and is a popular dish in many cultures, including Chinese, French, and Vietnamese cuisine. Duck is also used in many traditional dishes such as Peking duck and duck confit. It is also a popular game bird and is often hunted for sport. Duck is a good source of protein and is also rich in minerals such as iron and zinc. It is also a good source of vitamin B12, niacin, and selenium. Duck fat is also used in cooking and is a popular ingredient in many traditional French dishes.

Duck is typically prepared by roasting or braising. Roasting is a method of cooking where the duck is placed in a hot oven and cooked until the skin is crispy and the meat is cooked through. This method is often used to prepare Peking duck, a traditional Chinese dish where the skin is eaten as a delicacy. Braising is a method of cooking where the duck is first seared over high heat to brown the skin and then cooked slowly in a liquid, such as a stock or wine, until the meat is tender. This method is often used to prepare duck confit, a traditional French dish where the duck legs are cooked in their own fat. Duck can also be cooked in a variety of ways such as smoking, grilling, frying, and even in stews, soups and curries. Whichever method is used, it is important to properly cook duck to an internal temperature of 165F (74C) to ensure that any harmful bacteria are killed and the meat is safe to eat.
