I got the idea for this recipe from the book '365, Dish a day' but adapted it. I have always loved duck and I think it goes great with the veg and bacon.

  1. wrap the duck with the bacon and place on a baking tray, cover with foil. Then put in the oven for 1 hour 30 minutes at 180.C.
  2. While that is cooking, spread the vegetables, garlic and shallots out in a shallow oven proof dish and set aside.
  3. Make the sauce - Blend the cornflour with the wine and whisk with the fromage frais in a saucepan. add any juices from the duck and vegetables into the sauce and whisk until boiling.
  4. When the duck has 25 minutes left to cook, pour the stock over the veg and place in the oven with the duck. Remove foil from over the duck.
  5. Start cooking your new potatoes as instructed on the packet (simmer for aprox. 20 mins).
  6. After the 1 hour 30 minutes is up, test if your duck is ready by skewering the bird and looking at the juices that run out, if they are clear, it is ready.
  7. When cooked, lift the duck onto the roasted veg, place the potatoes next to the duck and garnish with parsley. Pour the sauce over the duck.
  8. Enjoy!
