I adore Nigel Slater's recipes, but I've love to know what cooker he's using, because it is Not Like Our Earth Cookers. 50mins at gas mark 6 to cook a stuffed 2kg duck? I don't think so. We gave it 90, and I was still filled with trepidation while carving.
Oh, and the recipe says, "For 2". Two what? Leopards? There's bloody loads left!
Mind you, I did plan to do the recipe over the page, which is under the heading of "things to do with the left-over duck..."
