With our pulled Confit de Canard you can skip all the hard, preparatory work. Skærmbillede 2020-12-01 kl. 08.50.29You do not have to wash, dry, season and preserve the meat for 24 hours. Also, you avoid having to boil the duck in its own fat for 4-6 hours – and ultimately, you do not have to remove the duck meat from the bones. Also, you avoid all the cleaning afterwards. Instead, you can simply use the tender, juicy and flavourful duck meat straight from the Top Table packaging and add it to your dishes.

The duck meat is packaged in small 1-kilo packages. In this way, all chefs can use it and at the same time keep food waste at a minimum. 

Did you know… that ducks used to make our pulled Confit de Canard are raised in France? Here they are bred slowly for a minimum of 102 days. Under blue skies and in free, natural surroundings. It does not get to be much more French – or authentic – than that!
