  • Slice the potatoes thinly with a mandolin, put the potatoes in a pan with the cream nutmeg and garlic and cook until the potatoes are tender then transfer to a oven-proof dish top with cheese, place in the oven for about 20 mins on 180.
  • Place the duck skin side down in a frying pan (oven proof) on low heat to render the fat (15 mins) then turn the heat up to crisp the skin turn over the duck and cook for 2 mins then transfer the duck to the oven for about 8 mins depending on how you like it cooked.
