Crepes and Canard Confit. Two very stereotypically French dishes. Yet with this dish, we have been very much inspired by a stereotypical Chinese dish – Peking Duck.
Peking Duck Pancakes makes for a wonderful format – rich duck, a sweet and moreish sauce, crisp and fresh salad all wrapped in a wafer thin pancake. We’ve married that same format but with distinctly French Flavours.
We take wonderfully indulgent confit Duck legs, shredded into small, bite-sized pieces and serve them with some petite, warm crepes. What could be more French?
We then serve ours with a tart jam – in this case rhubarb, a honey-mustard sauce, cornichons and some soft delicate leaves.
A familiar format with new flavours – perfect for a relaxed dinner party or a novel meal on Pancake Day!
