Hello, I’m Marni. Welcome to Love and Duck Fat!
The recipes you find here are delicious, (and mostly healthy) meals and desserts. They are sophisticated, elegant recipes easy enough for the home cook to tackle and often the kind of meals that you would pay for in a restaurant...a really good restaurant.
Those recipes are shared with you with photography (which I also love). I eat with an emphasis on organic meats, fruits and vegetables, and go to a lot of trouble to source from local food artisans and farms, while living in the heart of the city.
Sometimes you will find out-of-the-ordinary recipes here like octopus stew, curried goat, fried smelts, green papaya or Burrata cheese. The way I see it, somewhere in the world these are someone’s everyday ingredients (lucky them!). What am I really good at? I seem to be good at making baby food recipes, cakes and seafood dishes. If I do make something out-of-my comfort zone, it’s to learn how to do it. I share that experience with you.
I love to stay in touch with my readers via Facebook, my personal Twitter feed and Pinterest. Sometimes you can find me on Instagram. Please drop me a line on any of those pages and I’ll follow you back.
My name is Marni Mutrux Meistrell and I live in Miami, Florida with my husband, our son Grayson, two dogs, and a cat named Miso. I've been blogging in one capacity or another since 2009 when I was living as a full-time artist. I've lived in Boston, California and Oregon; cooking and enjoying a lot of good meals along the way.
