Seasonal Duck Recipes

duck roast
We’ve plumped(!) for duck as our Christmas bird this year, so a hunt for appropriate recipes was called for. Problem is of course that ducks tend to be a tad smaller than Turkey or Goose, so depending on numbers you may need more than one bird.Waitrose offer a couple of promising recipes – and although “duck with orange” sounds a bit of a cliché this sounds good.Roast Duck with Thyme and orange-roasted pumpkin. Alternatively try Roast Duck with Elderberry Sauce Over at the Observer, Nigel Slater offers a simple Roast Duck and Pancetta and Potatoes
Courtesy of we found a pile of duck recipes from the SanFrancisco Chronicle including several for Slow Roasted Duck. On the BBC website there is a more British recipe for Gary Rhodes’ Roast duck with crispy duck hash and local beer gravy, spring greens and glazed carrots.
However for a more French version you could try “Caneton à la Bigarade” which is a variation on Duckling à l’Orange but using bitter oranges (bigarades) found in Elizabeth Luard’s delightful book Classic French Cooking: Recipes for Mastering the French Kitchen
