Food

  • A fleshy, well-flavoured, slightly gamey lean duck, Cairina moschata, with musky-flavoured flesh, originally from South America but now bred in France and elsewhere and very popular in Australia. It is slaughtered at up to 3 months old and should be cooked more slowly than duckling and barded and basted.
