Duck Bobotie with Apricot Jam

This South-African dish is basically a casserole where meat is baked together with moist milk-soaked bread and topped with custard. Our bobotie uses cubed fat duck meat. We cook it with sweet raisins and flavor with curry powder. We wanted to increase the sweetness factor, so we added some apricot jam between the layers of goodness.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
