    That's not one recipe, it's four! ;) Is that for a menu description? You could always be a minimalist and say Duck. Sauce. Potato. Vegetable. :D

    Naw it's for that recipe contest I am doing. Typing it up right now...just thought the description could be a little shorter. Maybe I'll just leave it the way it is.

    Or in English
    Why bother shortening it? It says what it is and it is what is says :look:

    Although I like Chrose's suggestion......

    Why the need to shorten the title?

    In my experience, (and I would like to hear from others if they have experienced the same thing lately),

    I have seen an increasing number of menus that go into greater detail about their entree's ingredients.

    Someday: This sounds like an excellent dish. Sometimes great dishes are complicated and embrace numerous ingredients. Maybe it's worth some parsimony to explain to the customer all the nuances of the dish.

    Personally, (and I again, I would like to hear other's opinions), I kind of prefer knowing everything I'm getting rather than guessing the ingredients, (or having to ask the server), about the entree with the "concise" title.

    It should not take longer to read the title than to eat the food.....
