  • The depth of flavour that you will find in a Wild Mallard that has grazed on grass, wheat, barley and pondweed is sublime.

    Mallard Duck is truly versatile, it can be used for roasting, braising and even cooked on the barbecue.

    With a deliciously rich flavour, the Wild Mallard's savoury taste pairs amazingly well with sharp and fruity flavours such as juicy blackberries, tart red berries and bitter citrus. 

    As the Mallard has lived a proper free range life, running, flying, swimming, gliding and flapping, it is tougher than its farmed counterpart. However with the right alchemy you are rewarded in rich, gamey flavour that is pure joy. Our favourite way to cook a Mallard has to be a simple roast, paired with season veg. 

    Mallard is the most common Wild Duck in the British Isles and can be found in plentiful numbers. It is one of the most ethical and sustainable types of meat that we can consume and should be celebrated when in season. 

    Depending on your recipe, we recommend 1 Mallard between 2 people.
