Long Description to add
Allow four weeks for the flavours of this confit to develop fully… a French classic that would make a good special-occasion dish as, once it's ready, you just need to cook it in the oven for 25 minutes.
Delia's delicious take on duck a l'orange brings this retro favourite bang up to date with the sharp, tangy flavour of Seville orange marmalade a great foil for the richness of the duck...
Since starting the How to Cook series I have at last hit on the very best way to get really crisp roast duck. If you've got a Gressingham duck then you'll have lots to eat as well as a really superb flavour.
It is perfectly all right to use duck or pheasant giblets instead of goose giblets in this recipe, although you will only need 1 pint (570 ml) water if you do.
This is one of my favourite starters: a terrine of tiny shreds of tender, succulent duck melded together like a pâté, then served with the dazzling depth of colour and sharpness of a confit of cranberries to counteract the richness.
This is it – the best method of roasting duck I've found to date, and of all the lovely sauces, this one – made with dried sour cherries – is the loveliest.
I’m not very horticulturally minded but rhubarb is, I think, technically, a vegetable. But since the richness of duck is always complemented by something sweet and acidic, rhubarb is absolutely perfect.
This is perfect for New Year's Eve or any other celebration meal as you prepare it well in advance then, on the night, simply put it into the oven to heat through. The sour cherry sauce is sensational!
This superb recipe gives you the crunchy, crisp skin of Chinese-style duck, but retains the moistness of the rich meat inside. Add a wonderful sour cherry sauce and you have a meal fit for a king!
Ring the changes with this sumptuous pate - perfect for Christmas or any other special occasion.
