When cooked correctly, duck is a deliciously tender meat which can produce a brilliant crispy skin. Many Aussies wouldn’t regularly cook with duck at home, and leave it for special occasions instead. But this collection of delicious recipes showcase how easy it is to make a tasty duck dish at home.
The best part about this meat is it can be effortlessly paired with many different flavours, and is celebrated widely through different cuisines – from an Italian-style ragu pasta, to an Asian-spiced duck and lychee curry.
