New Rotisserie Half Duck Winning Raves
Maple Leaf Farms Rotisserie Half Duck was named a finalist in the Outstanding Meat, Pate, or Seafood category of the 32nd Annual Product Competition at New York's 2004 Fancy Food Show last June. More than 1,500 products were entered in the competition, which is sponsored by the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade (NASFT). The food show featured thousands of exhibitors who showcased 70,000 specialty food items for more than 24,000 chefs, caterers, and food-industry professionals.
On the June 28th episode of Good Morning America, Food Editor Sara Moulton highlighted Maple Leaf Farms pre-cooked, pre-seasoned, Rotisserie Half Duck as one of the most innovative products featured.
"This is easy. You just pop it in the oven and it's done. Isn't that delicious...I love that!" said Moulton during a segment that highlighted 20 products from the thousands featured at the food show.
Hand-rubbed with a blend of oregano, garlic, and rosemary, Maple Leaf Farms Rotisserie Half Duck is a fully-cooked product that can be prepared in less than 20 minutes. Versatile enough to be grilled, baked, or broiled, duck boasts great flavor that offers a unique dining experience for any occasion, the company relays.
