Cooking Instructions

Roast Duck 7 Kilograms

Duck has a lot of fat, it is not greasy if cooked properly, and it is a technique to cook it properly.
Start by roasting the whole Duck in a deep pan, Preheat 350 and cook for 30 Minutes. Remove fat and reserve.
Turn the heat up to 375 and roast for another 30 Minutes. Again drain and reserve fat and allow to cool. Allow Duck to come to room temp and refrigerate over night with fat and juices.

Next day: Debone Duck and reserve all the bones. See here how to debone a cooked duck properly.

Put all roasted bones and vegetables in a pot along with any juices from carving it. Cook down over medium heat. Add Flour gradually as to make a roux. Now take that Duck fat and remove the top layer of fat, look what's below? Put that into your sauce.
