ABOUT
Mallard is the largest and most common of the wild ducks, followed by the smaller teal and widgeon. Wild duck has a slightly shaky reputation based on its unpredictable eating quality; at best it’s a delicious duck for roasting or stewing, at worst it’s a slightly tough specimen with an unpleasant fishy flavour. Most mallards sold for eating will have been farmed for shooting and had their natural diet supplemented with grain. As such, they’re generally a safer bet when it comes to flavour, although lack a little of the desirable gaminess that is characteristic of teal. Wild ducks have less fat than their farmed counterparts and roast more quickly.  The tasting will offer an opportunity to compare the two accompanied by generous quantity of good quality of Pinot Noir (tbc).
