  • Preparation time10 minutes
  • Cooking time80 minutes


  • 1 whole duck (approx. 1.6 kg)
  • 1 KNORR Garlic & Rosemary Cook-in-Bag
  • 45 ml honey


  • No need to preheat oven
  • Remove duck from the packaging and remove the giblets and trim off any excess fat then rinse under cold, running water
  • Pat the duck dry inside and out with kitchen paper towel
  • Using a sharp knife score the skin of the duck as well as prick a few holes then rub with honey
  • Place the duck into the cook-in-bag breast side up and season with the dry KNORR mixture. Close bag at the end with the blue tie supplied.
  • Very gently massage the KNORR mixture into the duck on a stable surface. Ensure dry mixture is evenly spread.
  • Place bag sideways in a cool oven dish and bake at 180 C for 80 minutes (20 minutes per 500 g duck plus 20 minutes extra) on the lowest shelf in the oven. Ensure that the grill is off at all times
  • Keep enough room for the bag to expand – bag must not touch the sides of the oven
  • When done allow the duck to rest for a few minutes then carefully cut open the bag and transfer to a serving dish
  • Use the juices from the bag to roast your potatoes and vegetables
