Stephanie Duck Confit

Traditionally made from free-range ducks in family farm. Award of Excellence.


Confit de canard (duck confit) is prepared in a centuries-old process of preservation that consists of curing the duck legs in salt for 24 hours and then cooking them in their own fat in a low temperature oven for up to ten hours, until meltingly tender. The meat is then transferred to a can and completely submerged in the fat. The cooking fat acts as both a seal and preservative and results in a very rich taste. Stéphanie’s confits are made following her family’s traditional recipes and contain nothing more than the meat and fat of her free-range ducks, salt and pepper. The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender and full of flavour.

Shelf Life

Unopened cans will last for 4 years at room temperature. Once the can is opened keep it up to 4 days in the fridge.

How to use

Take the duck legs out of the can leaving as much as possible of the fat behind. Place them skin side up on an oven tray and warm them up in a 180°C oven for 15 min, until the meat is warm and the skin golden and crispy. Blot them quickly on some kitchen paper to absorb the excess fat and serve them piping hot. The flavourful remaining fat can be kept refrigerated in a sealed container for up to 6 months. Use it to sauté vegetables ( potatoes, green beans, mushrooms, etc…), to make croutons (see Quick Tips) or to bake eggs.

What about Stephanie


Received the Award of Excellence in 2015, can't get better than that!

Stéphanie is a small vivacious French lady, full of energy and passion for her land and her animals. Together with her family she raises ducks on their farm located just above the magnificent medieval village of Rocamadour, in the French Dordogne Valley. Arriving at the farm after a winding road, in the afternoon of a sunny September day, she gives us a tour of the premises and we can admire the ducks waddling in the grass and laying down in the shade of the trees.
