  • Wine Recommendation
  • A bright, cherryish Pinot Noir will go beautifully well with this starter. Try one from New Zealand.

Method

  • STEP 1
    Put the nuts into a hot, dry frying pan over a medium heat and toast for about 30 seconds. Add the butter, mixed spice and sugar, reduce the heat slightly and cook for 11/2-2 minutes, turning halfway. The nuts should be caramelised, but be careful not to burn them. Season and spread out on a tray to cool.
  • STEP 2
    Meanwhile, make the dressing. Put the mustard and vinegar in a small bowl, then whisk in the oils. Add the creme de cassis in 2 stages, so you can check for sweetness. Season.
  • STEP 3
    In a bowl, toss the watercress, chicory, cranberries and nuts with most of the dressing. Divide between plates, arrange the duck on top and drizzle with the rest of the dressing.
