Methods and Directions

Smoked Duck Pâté
  • On a low to medium heat, sauté shallots and garlic till it becomes aromatic.
  • Add in thyme, salt, pepper and all-spice.
  • Deglaze with port then add white wine.
  • Bring stock to the boil then remove from heat.
  • When liquid is cooled to room temperature, marinate the duck breast in it overnight.
  • Blend it the next day and pass it through a fine sieve.
Smoked Duck Salad
  • Pipe a small mound of smoked duck pâté into the cavity of the swan’s body. Top with frisee leaves and chopped parsley.
  • Drizzle with the blueberry and pomegranate reduction. Garnish with pomegranate seeds
Choux Pastry Swans
  • In a medium size saucepan, heat the milk, water, butter, salt and sugar until butter is melted and the mixture starts to boil.
  • Remove from heat and add in the sifted flour. Mix until it becomes a well-combined dough. Put back on heat to dry out the dough.
  • Mix in beaten eggs.
  • Pipe with a flower tip the swan bodies with tapering ends as the tails. Use a small round tip to pipe the swan necks.
  • Bake at 180°C until golden brown.
  • Cool on rack and slice one end of the swan’s body top open. Split the top into halves lengthwise to form their wings. Attach the necks to the bodies with a dollop of crème fraiche.
Pomegranate Blueberry Reduction
  • Combine pomegranate juice, ginger, thyme, orange zest and juice, honey and cloves in a medium size saucepan over medium heat.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook until the mixture has reduced by half, for about 10 minutes.
  • Add blueberries and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until sauce is concentrated and slightly thickened, for about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and season with salt and lemon juice. Cool and reserve.
