• 75ml Non-Alcohol Syrah Grape Juice

• 1 Green Orange, zested and ½ juiced

• 1 tbsp Tomato Puree

• 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar Modena IGP

1) In a non-stick pan, heat 1 tsp oil over medium heat. Season the Duck Leg by Ernest Soulard and cook for 3–4 minutes on each side. Remove and set it aside.

2) Cook onion for 3 to 4 minutes until golden. Add the crushed garlic, wait 10 minutes, and then add the Syrah grape juice, orange zest, tomato puree, and bay leaf. Season and bring to a boil.

3) Return the duck legs to the pan, cover and cook on a low heat for 1 hour, or until cooked through

4) In the meantime, cook the shallots. Melt 20 grams of butter in a small pan over a low heat. Stir in 1 tablespoon olive oil, 5 tablespoons water, and 1 tablespoon vinegar. Season to taste. Cook the shallots for 30 to 35 minutes, stirring often, until tender.

5) Pre-heat the grill on high. Place the duck on a rack and grill for 2-3 minutes until crisp.

6) Meanwhile, bring the sauce to a boil, add the 10g butter, and cook, stirring often, until reduced by just over half.

7) Chop the remaining garlic finely and mix with the orange zest and endive. Pour the sauce over the duck and top with the parsley mixture. Serve with sticky shallots.
