I took the kids out on a Shopping adventure with my mum in the morning, while Dave and Yoss prepped the bird. I thought it more appropriate for the children to witness their mother indulging in some heavy consumerism, rather than their father providing for them in the most basic of ways. We returned to find a plucked duck. A perfect plucked duck- just like one you would expect to buy at woolies, minus the cling wrap.
Dave marinated it using this classic Cantonese recipe. Rice and wilted greens provided the perfect side while our River Cottage besties provided the perfect company. Oh, they also provided an excellent view, arriving after a wedding- all dolled up and smelling of booze.
