After a quick look at their main site, we decided to try out their smoked duck breast salad with fig, manchego and crispy sage leaves, which they created for The Telegraph. Wow great flavours, smells outstanding and looks beautiful, give it a go for lunch…

Serves 2

  • 8 slices smoked duck breast (found in most delis and supermarkets)
  • 3 figs, quartered
  • 25g hazelnuts, roasted and chopped
  • a small chunk of good quality manchego cheese,
  • crisp salad leaves
  • small bunch of sage leaves picked
  • good quality olive oil
  • sea salt and cracked black pepper


Heat a little oil in a small frying pan and add the sage leaves and fry till crisp then remove and place on kitchen paper. Assemble the salad on a pretty plate – first the salad leaves and toss with a little olive oil and salt and pepper then arrange the duck breast, figs, and hazelnuts, take a vegetable peeler and shave the manchego onto the salad, finished by the crispy sage leaves. Drizzle with a dash of peppery olive oil and a glass of 20-year-old Tawny Port.
