Preparation of the breast:

1. Remove the breasts from the refrigerator 10 minutes before cooking.

4. Brown the duck breast at low heat for 30 minutes. Remove cooking fat regularly and store in a bowl.

6. Remove the duck breasts from the heat.

Preparation of the figs:

1. Cut the figs in half lengthwise.

2. In the same pan, add two tablespoons of duck fat and sear the figs, just a few seconds, on the skin side.

3. Discard the cooking grease and deglaze the remaining juices with the raspberry vinegar.


1. Slice the breast finely.

2. Arrange the plates with the figs and coat with the deglazed juice.

Serve with a glass of wine from the Saint-Emilion appellations.
