Place the game stock in a deep saucepan and bring to the boil.

Meanwhile, melt some of the butter in a saucepan and add the shallots. Sweat until soft then add the mushrooms and berries and cook gently for a further 3-4 minutes.

Pour in the port, add the orange zest then heat until reduced by a third.

Add the reduced game stock to the pan then simmer for 25 minutes, skimming the surface when necessary.

Strain through a fine sieve then set to one side, keeping warm.


Heat the oil in a frying pan until smoking then cook the duck breast for 3 minutes on each side. Add a knob of butter then cook for a further minute on each side.


Assemble the duck, remoulade and quince jelly on a plate.

Stir some butter through the port sauce then pour over the duck to serve.
