As they are leaner than farmed ducks be aware that these wild birds roast faster, though also make for more refined dining with the rich meat offering more complex flavours. As such wild duck is increasingly in demand for restaurant menus, while our Wild Mallard is well paired with fruity flavours, such as plum or orange.

About the cut

Whole Mallard

These birds are sourced primarily from the Yorkshire valleys of Wharfedale, Nidderdale, and Wensleydale. Game was once a key part of the butcher's business with wild ducks a common part of the country diet. These birds are carefully de feathered and the innards removed before being dispatched fresh. Be sure to have a quick look for shot before cooking, in the unlikely chance it was missed.
