This was excellent! I've never cooked duck before, so I followed the recipe exactly (well, almost - I cooked the breast according to a Gordon Ramsay YouTube video). The sauce pairs very well with the duck, and I will definitely save this recipe. Thank you.
Fixed this for dinner tonight...totally awesome sauce! Wouldn't change a thing. Except to make more sauce next time. I'm not a big fan of sage, but I have a sage plant, and used it anyway. I was afraid that the sage flavor would overwhelm the sauce, but it didn't. Fantastic. Sauce also great with carrots and sweet potatoes. I usually use a raspberry sauce for duck, but wanted something different, and didn't have any raspberries anyway. LOL Five stars for you!
Wonderful! I used white balsamic vinegar to go with the white wine, then found out I didn't have any white wine. I used red instead, and it was still fantastic. I kept the sides simple since this dish is so good; fresh green beans and mashed potatoes.
Delicious recipe and very easy to make. The sauce really complimented the duck and made the whole thing yummy. Will definately be making this again. Five Stars
I made this last night and both my husband and I thouroughly enjoyed it. It was very simple to prepare and the flavours complimented each other. I have only given 4 instead of 5 stars as we live near France and I buy magret of duck once a week as it is very inexpensive. You can imagine how many duck recipes, my own and other peoples I have tried. My rating reflects this, as we think there are better suaces that compliment duck. If I hadn't tried so many duck recipes, I would probably have given 5 stars as I would have nothing to compare it with. I followed the recipe exactly, except I bought duck with the skin on, both my husband and I love the crispy skin of a duck. I served mine with marinated, roasted aspargus and mashed parsnips it was delicious. I will definitely be making again. Thanks for posting.
I made this for my husband for Valentine's Day (a day early -- he has class tomorrow) and it was awesome. Great sauce and really easy to fix, too. I followed the recipe exactly, using dried cherries. Food of love. Thanks!
