Sorry about the sound quality; it turned out to be a pretty windy day. So I added some subtitles at parts where the wind completely masked what I was saying.
My mother and I decided to take a drive out East to the Hamptons the other day because she’s always wanted to see the Long Island Duck. I thought it’d be a great chance to showcase a bit of where I come from and what we’re known for in the culinary world.
I won’t ruin the video, but I will say that Long Island was once the biggest producer of ducks in the United States. Sadly, there are only two remaining duck farms on Long Island. I hope that as the food movement in the US continues to grow people will be inspired to look back towards traditions, such as duck farming, and start to bring them back before they completely disappear.
