DW Duck a la Montmorency

Post by Nick » Thu 20 Aug, 2009 22:01:00

I've come accross a recipe for a main course of Duck a la Montmorency served warm. DW favourite dish I believe.


Ingredients5 lb Duck
1 md Quartered onion
2 Coasely chopped carrots
2 Coasely chopped celery
Stalks
2 1/2 c ESPAGNOLE SAUCE
14 oz Can sweet cherries
1/2 c Brights Cream Sherry
2 ts Grated orange rind
1/4 c Orange juice
3 tb Icing sugar
1 pn Cinnamon
1 Pack (250 g) cream cheese,
Cut in cubes

InstructionsPreheat oven to 350. Prick skin all over with fork. Place duck in roasting pan, surround with vegetables & add 3 cups water. Roast, uncovered, in oven for 25 minutes per pound or until cooked through. Meanwhile, bring Espagnole sauce to boil & reduce to 1 1/4 cup. Drain cherries, reserve 1/2 cup cherry juice. Combine reduced Espagnole sauce, reserved cherry juice, sherry, orange rind & orange juice. Remove duck from pan; keep warm. Discard vegetables from pan juices & drain off all fat. Stir 1 cup pan juices in Espagnole mixture. Bring to boil & reduce, stirring constantly, to 1 1/4 cups. Add sugar, cinnamon & cheese; stir until smooth. Stir in cherries. Carve duck & serve accompanied with sauce.



I came accross another that uses redcurrant sauce as well. My wife is working on the Peach Bola. I'll let you know.

Thanks, Nick

Most interesting !

Curiously quite different from the recipe in Celebrity Cooking for You on http://www.denniswheatley.info/others5.htm

One for summer and one for winter ???

Perhaps we'd better try them both ... who's good at cooking ???

[Not me !!!]

All best !!

Maybe the Chef at the Corus Hotel? There's a thought!
