Heart of the House Restaurant
On our way to Temecula Wine Country, we made our first stop at Heart of the House Restaurant. Executive Chef and owner, Richard Bustos, presents a cooking demo on his signature Duck L'Orange. He sears a beautiful breast of duck and plates it with fennel, orange sauce, fresh arugula, sliced pear and finishes it off with a balsamic drizzle.
Here are behind the scene photos and the video.
Producer, Eddie de la Rosa, sets up shop.

Vualá... le Duck L'Orange.
Forks before dorks.
A breeze sweeps in as I take the first bite.
And that's a wrap! Cheers!
If you're happy & you know it, hug the chef.
