  • 2 russet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp PC Black Label Goose Fat
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp PC Black Label Shichimi Togarashi 7-Spice Blend , plus more for garnish (optional)
  • 1 200-g pkg cheese curds , chopped
  • 1 prepared confit duck leg
  • 2 thick slices of bacon , cut into 10in. pieces
  • 1/2 cup kimchi , coarsely chopped
  • 3 green onions , cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 1/4 cup PC Memories of Seoul Gochujang Spicy Chili Sauce
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise


  • 1/2 sheet nori , cut into strips
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


  • PREHEAT oven to 450F, then line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • CUT potatoes into french fry sticks, about 1/2 in. thick. Pat dry. Arrange in single layer on prepared sheet and toss with goose fat and salt. Bake, flipping halfway, until golden and crisp, 25 to 30 min. Move fries together on sheet and sprinkle immediately with togarashi and cheese curds. Continue baking until curds start to melt, about 2 min.
  • DISCARD skin and bones from duck leg. Coarsely shred meat into a bowl.
  • HEAT a large frying pan over medium-high. Add bacon and cook for 2 min (bacon should not be crisp), then add kimchi and cook until edges start to brown, 1 to 2 min. Move bacon mixture to side of pan, then add duck meat. Stir until warmed through, 2 min. Sprinkle green onions over bacon mixture and cook for 30 sec. Remove from heat.
  • TRANSFER fries and curds to a large platter. Layer with duck and bacon mixture. Drizzle with gochujang sauce and mayo, then top with nori strips, sesame seeds and more togarashi. Serve warm.
