Ideal for the winter season, this traybake is packed full of warming ingredients and features a beautiful combination of duck, shallots and potatoes. Perfect for a night-in with family and friends.


Preheat oven to 190°C/170°C fan.

Place the raw potato wedges on a lined baking tray. Add the duck, shallots and carrots. Mix all the ingredients for the cooking liquid and pour over the top of the tray. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for an hour.

Take the tray out of the oven and remove the foil, putting it to one side. Place the tray back in the oven for another 30 minutes to crisp up the duck skin.

Remove from the oven and replace the foil. Leave to rest for 10 minutes before eating.
