05 March 2017 • Duck Masterclass

This class was given to me as a Valentines present, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The small class (only 5 people) meant that we got plenty of one on one time with the chef. He style is very relaxed yet informative. It covers a range of topics to what works well with duck, to how to prepare duck for different dishes to how to cook duck in various ways. Highly recommend it to anyone.
