Cold, winter days are an inspiration for eating something warm and satiating.
This dish is pretty time-consuming; that’s why I recommend to make it just on weekends 😉

– 2kg duck

– 2tbsp. oil
– 1tsp. cayenne pepper
– 1tbsp. thyme
– 1tbsp. marjoram
– 1tsp. salt
– 1/2tsp. colour pepper
- Stuff duck with peeled, chopped apple and onion. Pour marinade over the meat.
- Bake with chopped carrots and green celery in baking foil for about 2hours in 180oC.
- Once backed, collect the sauce, add backed carrots and celery, and process in blender.

I am not in my kitchen this week because I am on short holidays in my hometown Gdansk. Obviously, I can’t cook anything what from time to time is a good thing.
Let me shortly write some information about my city.
Gdansk in Poland, is a city on the Baltic coast at the southern part of the Gulf of Gdansk. Together with two other cities, spa town of Sopot and Gdynia, Gdansk forms a metropoly called Tricity (in Polish called Trójmiasto) with a total population of around 1 million inhabitants. Gdansk is an important Polish seaport and shipbuilding center. It has a rich history and a lot to offer from tourist point of view. It was one of the host cities for Euro 2012:)
If you look for more info, just google it:)
