WATCH: Mario Batali Will Teach You to Make Crispy Duck With Lentils And Bacon

Mario Batali is taking requests. In a collaboration with Eataly (so,┬áMario Batali x Mario Batali),┬áthe celebrity chef and restaurateur takes requests from home cooks. Anyone is welcome to submit his or her four favorite ingredients, and Batali will turn them into a recipe. In this episode, he’s cooking for Bob from Boston, who chose duck, lentils, bacon and dates. We don’t know who Bob is but his choices are excellent and we’d like to meet him.

The dish is pretty decadent, but Batali makes it look easy. Watch the video:
