Wine match Josef Chromy Pinot Noir 2010, Relbia, Tas
Of course you could choose not to drink Pinot Noir with this wonderful duck dish. I said you could. But as the world stopped turning you’d realise your folly. Duck and Pinot is a cliché that I never ever get tired of. The savoury, earthy meat, with the sweet glaze dial up that perfect Pinot balance of funk and fruit. Go for something with a bit of body and richness to stand up to the glaze. At a recent Pinot Noir blind tasting this Josef Chromy Pinot Noir showed beautifully, especially against bottles many times its price. It has fruit richness, a smoky edge and lovely texture.
Ingredients2 carrots, cut into medium dice
2 onions, cut into medium dice
2 sticks celery, cut into medium dice
2 Pekin ducks (1.5kg each)
4 thyme sprigs, leaves stripped
Salt flakes and black pepper
100g Seville orange marmalade, warmed
PreparationPreheat the oven to 220°C.
Scatter the vegetables around a baking tray.
Cut the ducks in half, removing the back bone, and season the skin with thyme, salt and pepper. Place, skin-side up, on the vegetables and roast for 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes.
Reduce the heat to 160ºC and roast until tender (when you push at the leg meat it is soft). This could take up to another hour, depending on the ducks and your oven.
When soft, take the ducks out of the oven. Cool slightly, and then remove the bones from the underside. Brush the skin with warmed marmalade and return to the oven for 5 minutes.

Seasoning cast iron
Seasoning a new cast iron frying pan will help to keep it in good condition and help to avoid odours and flavours sticking to the pan. Coat the inside of the pan in oil and place in a hot oven for 30 - 60 minutes. Allow it to cool before wiping it clean.
Pak choy and baby pak choy are tender vegetables with pale green stems and darker green rounded leaves.
