Duck Braised in Coconut

I’ve found a bunch of unprocessed images on my laptop whilst enjoying a beautiful afternoon in a Swedish sunroom, and it’s time to start sharing the love. In this case, the Luv-A-Duck love. 

Last year I was invited down to a masterclass with one of my favourite chefs, Adam D’Sylva. I met a bunch of lovely people as well as some old friends and we all learnt how to debone a duck and cook it in a variety of ways to perfection. This particular dish is one very similar to one of Adam’s signature dishes at Coda

A perfect dish for entertaining or made ahead and freeze to enjoy.
