Recipe: Nightwood Restaurant’s Spicy Duck SOPA

In honor of defiance of SOPA, Nightwood Restaurant featured a spicy duck soup (get it?) on its brunch menu last Sunday. The kicker: it came with a copy of the recipe.

There was nothing gimmicky about the soup, though. It was a robust broth with serious complexity, redolent of Asian spices and the mysterious funk of fermented black garlic; the hearty shrimp dumplings and perfectly braised egg were better than any I’ve had in Chinatown.

Below is the recipe for fearless cooks with well-stocked larders, livers of steel, and an inordinate amount of time on their hands:

Nightwood Restaurant, 2119 S. Halsted, Chicago.
