Somebody gifted me a whole duck, humanely raised, with the head on and everything. What should I do with this beauty? I want to use as many parts as possible. Thanks!!

It's a small duck. My idea was to cut off the breasts and sear those for supper, take the skin and render the fat for other purposes, and then slow cook the carcas with white beans and veg to make cassoulet? Maybe confit the legs in that fat?
If you have other ideas (real Peking Duck?) or practical experience utilizing a whole bird like this, please lay it on me!
PS - we have eyeballs and a beak, so I'm pretty sure the tasty giblets are in there, too:-))
