Preparation of Duck Breasts
For each 4 legs:
Score the skin on each duck breast and then
pack in a plastic
sous vide bag. Immerse the bags in a water
bath set to 58 Celsius for 20 minutes. When
done crisp skin then slice.
Preparing the Vegetables:
Sauté the potatoes and mushrooms and
spring onions in separate pans using duck fat

easily burn vegetables.
