Preparation Time: 2 hrs 10 mins Cooking Time: 40 mins Serving: 6


 Pan-Roasted Duck Breast

  • 2 duck breasts
  • salt
  • pepper

 Potato Dauphinoise

  • 400g of Maris Piper potatoes, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 300ml of whole milk
  • 200ml of double cream
  • 2 pinches of nutmeg, grated
  • salt
  • pepper

 Caramelised Chicory

  • 2 white chicory
  • 25ml of soy sauce
  • 100ml of orange juice
  • 50g of butter
  • caster sugar

 Red Wine Sauce

  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
  • 1 leek, white only, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 celery stick, thinly sliced
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 20ml of red wine
  • 50ml of red wine vinegar
  • 100ml of port
  • 500ml of brown chicken stock
  • vegetable oil


  1. To prepare the potato dauphinoise, finely slice the potatoes using a mandolin and set aside in water until required
  2. Combine the cream, milk, nutmeg, garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Once boiling, remove from the heat and set aside
  3. Strain the water off the potatoes and layer inside a small oven dish lined with baking paper, being sure to overlap each layer as you go
  4. Preheat the oven to 160˚C/gas mark 3. Pour enough of the cream mixture over the potatoes to cover and bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until slightly golden on top and tender through the middle
  5. For the red wine sauce, place a medium-sized pot onto a high heat and add enough vegetable oil to coat the base of the pan. As soon as the pan begins to smoke, add the shallots, carrots, leek, garlic and celery
  6. Cook until the vegetables reach a dark golden brown colour. Add the thyme, rosemary, port, wine and vinegar, turn down to a simmer and reduce until almost dry
  7. Add the brown chicken stock and reduce again by half. Remove from the heat, strain through a fine sieve into another pan and reduce to sauce consistency
  8. For the chicory, remove any damaged outer leaves and cut in half lengthways. Sprinkle with a little caster sugar and caramelise in a hot frying pan, cut side down, until golden brown
  9. Add the soy sauce, orange juice and butter. Cover the pan with a lid or circle of greaseproof paper and cook for 5-6 minutes until tender. Be sure to baste the chicory with the cooking liquid regularly
  10. Meanwhile, season the duck breasts with salt and pepper and place, skin side down, in a cold frying pan. Place on the heat and slowly bring the temperature up from cold, which will help the fat to render down and duck to cook more evenly
  11. Continue to cook until golden brown, then turn the breast over and leave on the heat for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and let the duck rest in the pan for 15 minutes - this will slowly finish off cooking the breast and allow it to rest at the same time
  12. Reheat the red wine sauce on the hob and cut the dauphinoise into portions. Slice the duck breast and arrange onto plates with a slice of the dauphinoise and 1 half of the chicory. Drizzle the plate with the sauce and serve immediately.
