I have a duck waiting at home to be cooked tonight. I checked the recipes online and most of them suggest cooking it in the oven for 4 hours and the one recipe by Bittman that calls for just one hour of cooking didn't have encouraging feedback. This is a celebratory dinner for my dad's birthday and I'm going to reach home only at around 6:30 or 7. Don't want the family to wait till 11 for their dinner. Any tips, tried and tested methods for oven-roasting a duck quickly?
Hannah, I looked for your primal journal to post this question, looks like you don't have one.
