Roast duck recipe

A festive twist on a great roast

Preparation5 Mins
Cooking Time40 Mins

A whole roast duck is a thing of beauty…..until you carve into it and realise the thigh meat is beautifully tender and melting but the breast meat is completely over cooked.

For me I feel you need to find that perfect compromise, so I have created this little recipe to keep as much moisture in the breast meat but still cooking the thigh meat long enough.

Bon appétit.

Ingredients Required
