This past week we have seen some real winter weather here in Cornwall with snow that actually stuck; giving me the perfect opportunity to show how our white ducks start off with a lovely yellow down.
We will be trading at Helston Farmers Market this Saturday 29th April 9.30am to 1.00pm in the old Cattle Market next to the boating lake. For more information on the market visit http://helstonfarmersmarket.co.uk/
2016 has been a great year for us at Cornish Duck.
After receiving our fantastic results from Taste of the West we are delighted to hear we have also won in the Great Taste Awards
Free Range Whole Cornish Duck
Free Range Cornish Duck Breast
Free Range Cornish Duck Burger
There were ten thousand product entries from the UK and Europe and only 141 were awarded with the prestigious 3 star.
Below are a couple of the judges comments for the whole duck -
A good sized breast with plenty of plump meat. The tender meat has distinctive duck aroma and taste. Great quality, full of flavour. Judges have gone back for more!
A superb flavour on the skin. A very tender duck with rich, fatty, oooziness. The breast meat is sweet and juicy, the darker meat is also moist and sweet. Obviously reared and fed well - this comes through in the flavour of fat, skin and meat.
We are delighted to have won Gold in the Taste of the West awards 2016 for -
