    I doubt that not many Chelsey readers will be making this dish with the cost of duck being as high as it is in NZ - think it was $36 at the supermarket last time I looked - for a bird that would feed maybe four people! They have so little meat on them in comparison to say, a chicken!

    I noticed that you cannot edit a post that is made directly after an article. The first sentence of my post above doesn't make sense (needs the 'not' deleted) but I can't fix it as there is no edit button - sorry.

    I haven't had duck for a while. We usually stick to just the duck breast when cooking. Yum.
  • Wice says
    Even the duck breasts were $19 each last time I looked!
  • KH says
    That is a bit steep!
