A question about a recipe: Slow Roast Duck

5337480747_a8cebf7000_o

I have a question about the recipe "Slow Roast Duck" from merrill. How can one 5 pound duck serve 6-8 people? Seems much to small to me.

I think you are right. The recipe should call for 2 ducks to feed that many and it's certainly easy enough to double. Check M's headnote for the recipe.

I find duck to be fairly rich, so I usually find myself eating less of it than chicken. In my house, a 3-to-4-pound chicken typically serves 4 to 6 people, and a 5-pound duck is definitely enough for 6 (8 may be a stretch, but there are usually some who eat lightly). Of course, you can make 2 ducks if you have all enthusiastic eaters!
