On the Plate

Duck Pappardelle
We start by breaking down whole ducks and then we season and roast the legs and thighs to crispy perfection.  The skin is removed and deep-fried, while the leg meat is removed from the bones. Duck bones are then roasted again before they are boiled down into a rich, dark duck stock. We then focus our attention to the sugo process.  Leeks are caramelized and deglazed with orange juice, and then the duck meat is added. We spend the next few hours perfecting the duck sugo with fried skin, mandarin orange simple syrup and a few other special ingredients.  At the end of our two-day adventure, we toss the rich, bright sugo with our handcrafted pappardelle pasta, which is finished with candied mandarin orange zest.  It is the perfect dish for a cold, winter evening.

In the Glass

Por Que No? From Tres Sabores
The Por Que No? is a rich and spicy Zinfandel blend with notes of blackberry, raspberry, and cinnamon. This winsome blend will leave you asking: “Why Not?” Dark fruit flavors pair well with roasted meats, game, and grilled steak. Campo will be featuring the Por Que No? at our Tres Sabores Wine Dinner on January 26th. For more information please call (775) 737-9555.

Know your Farmer

Located near the intersection of Rock Blvd and Mill St. Avanzino Farms has been providing produce to the Reno-Sparks area since 1925. The original 42 acres were purchased by Jack and Mina Avanzino and planted in a variety of vegetables. Starting in the early 1950′s, their son George grew the important crops of the time – potatoes and onions. Currently farmed by Doug Avanzino, the remaining 30 acres has returned to growing a variety of row crop vegetables for the local market. These include corn, squash, beets, carrots, cucumbers, potatoes and pumpkins. As the last remaining vegetable farm in Reno, Avanzino Farms stands as a reminder of the areas agricultural past.
