Starter time. A bit late as Andrew, who went to bed at 1 AM, only just got up.
It's the same starter as every year. As we have our traditions here.
The duck is burning quite nicely. Wouldn't want it to be undercooked. Five hours is about right for a 2.3 kilo bird, isn't it? Mum always started cooking the turkey at 4 AM. A duck does need the same time in the oven as a 12 kilo turkey, doesn't it?
