Duck is such a treat. This is a nice, easy meal to impress – perfect for a special occasion.
The sweetness of the kumara tastes amazing with the rich duck with it’s flavour from the five-spice, but what will really impress is the incredibly flavourful plum jus. The duck skin may look a bit blackened after cooking, but don’t worry – this is just the five-spice. Duck breast is best cooked medium; the flesh should be a pale rosy pink colour, like medium-cooked lamb.
