Hello, guys! Today I want to share with you the recipe of Roasted Duck with Caramelized Orange for your Christmas table.

I was always afraid to cook duck as it is very easy to spoil. If you miss the right time to stop cooking it may become gummy and hard to chew. But with this recipe it has never been that easier! Besides, it looks like the Top Chef from a very fashionable restaurant has just been on your kitchen and cooked the main course for your family. But what a surprise! It was you who managed to create such a pleasant to the eye and stomach dish!
