CRISPY DUCK. I've always thought one of the best ways to eat duck was as the Chinese do, but I had never thought it would be so easy to cook. I say "cook". I do nothing except cut some fat off the duck and sit it on a rack on a roasting tin and put it in the oven for hours on end. Then, I take it out, set to with some forks and put some shop-bought Chinese pancakes on to steam.
Heston Blumenthal's Christmas cookie tree centrepiece both looks and tastes fantastic. It’s worth all the preparation and can be made in advance of Christmas. Try the recipe by clicking on the picture or visit Redonline.co.uk
