I was in Tesco's today and impulse bought a duck. I am worried this is because my subconscious was trying to impress Dave Holland with my l33t domestic skilz. Sadly, I have no l33t domestic skilz. But I do have a duck.

Duck is simplicity itself. 40 mins at, oh, six or so and then two hours at two. All the l33t domestic skilz in the world won't do so well if they start with a carrot...

Prick the skin and rub it with salt and five-spice first.

Dave Holland is almost on LJ - he has an openID account and an RSS feed.

Wait a sec - you know Dave Holland? Small world!

Cooking tip

(Link)
My dad says cook it following the instructions on the packaging, but remember to prick the surface all over about every 20 minutes. Also stand it on a rack above the roasting tray. Duck is lovely, but just remember to fat that runs out can also make the best roast spuds too.

Part boil the spuds, drain and then shake in the pan to rough the surface. Place in a roasting try. Not the duck roasting try. Then spoon 3 or 4 good spoonfuls of duck fat over. Place in the top of the over and move them around about every 30 mins. - Roast spuds to die for.

Well, I imagine the best way to acquire l33t domestic skilz is by practising, so it ain't necessarily a bad way to go about it.

Asda's crispy duck from the faux Chinese section is actually pretty darn good (and cheap).

when I did duck I cooked it at very hot for 40 mins only. No long cooking at merely warm. I wonder if its a different type of duck?
