  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 200�C. Rinse ducks and pat dry with paper towels. Cut off necks, trim wings to the first joint, then tie legs together. Using a skewer, prick duck skin all over – this will help to release the fat.

  • Step 3
    Strain liquid from pan through a fine sieve into a bowl and place in the freezer until the fat solidifies on the top. Scoop off fat and reserve liquid and fat separately.
  • Step 4
    Meanwhile, cool ducks slightly. Carve thighs and legs into marylands and breasts in one piece, then place on an oven tray. Discard vegetables and bones.
  • Step 5
    Cook potatoes in a saucepan of boiling salted water for 3 minutes. Drain, then spread out on a clean tea towel to dry.
  • Step 6
    Heat butter in a frying pan over medium heat, cook figs for 1 minute on each side, then remove from pan. Add duck cooking juices to the pan and simmer until reduced to 375ml (1 1/2 cups). Add vincotto and simmer until mixture is syrupy.
  • Step 7
    Preheat oven to 220�C. Place ducks in the oven for 15 minutes until heated through and skin is crisp.
  • Step 8
    Meanwhile, heat reserved duck fat in a large frying pan and cook potatoes, in 2 batches, for 5 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels and season with sea salt.
