“Here's another James Beard classic. This is our special anniversary dinner every year for the last 15 or more years since I found the recipe. The orange sauce is awesome! The Grand Marnier and the fresh orange zest really add that special touch. We usually double the sauce because we love it over rice on the side. It can also be made with roasted chicken, but duck makes it really special.”
