Recipe for duck stew

Preparation time 30 minutes
Cooking time 1 1/2 HOURS



Ideally, marinade the duck pieces overnight in the wine and spices (add the onion and thyme to the crushed garlic, ginger, salt, pepper and cloves). After a night in the refrigerator, it will taste excellent !


  • Drain the duck pieces and put the wine and spices (onions, garlic, ginger, cloves, etc.) to one side.
  • Finely chop the spring onions and parsley.
  • Seal the drained duck pieces in very hot oil.
  • When they’re nicely browned, add the spices and fry gently.
  • Add the thyme, and keep moist by adding the wine little by little.
  • Simmer gently for one hour,
  • Then add the spring onions and parsley.

After an hour, you should have a creamy sauce.
