David McAninch at the University Club of Chicago

We will welcome David McAnich to the University Club of Chicago on Tues. Mar. 21st at 12:00 p.m. to discuss his book DUCK SEASON. Please call The Book Stall at 847-446-8880 to make your reservation (please note that the dress code for this event is business casual; denim is not permitted).

In "Duck Season", food writer David McAninch chronicles the time he spent in Gascony—a deeply rural region of France virtually untouched by mass tourism—meeting extraordinary characters and eating the best meals of his life. McAninch knew little about Gascony, an ancient region in Southwest France mostly overlooked by Americans until an assignment sent him to research a story on duck. After enjoying a string of rich meals—Armagnac-flambéed duck tenderloins; skewered duck hearts with chanterelles; a duck-confit shepherd’s pie strewn with shavings of foie gras—he soon realized what he’d been missing.
