Duckherd’s Pie

When being authentic gets in the way of a good meal

On January 22, 2021, the editors of Food & Wine magazine issued a rare apology for being culturally inappropriate with a picture of Mole Verde. The editors thought it would make a better photo if they doused the mole in hot sauce and served it with a bowl of lime wedges. Neither of which is culturally correct and both are completely unspeakable in Mexico where the dish originates.

My earliest attempt at cookery began with the filleting of my sister's goldfish at age 2 and cooking my pet rabbits by age 7. Life has been downhill ever since.
