WHO ARE COOMBE FARM ORGANIC?​

We are an organic farm in Somerset producing award-winning pork, beef, lamb and chicken. Farming organically means that we never use chemicals on our fields and rely instead on natural methods that are kinder to nature. Organic farms are home to 30% more species of wildlife and 50% more pollinators as a result.

WHAT IS ORGANIC DUCK?

By working with a poultry specialist who has decades of experience running a Soil Association-certified farm, we know that our duck has been reared in a natural, high-welfare system. These traditional birds produce meat that is unforgettable from first taste – juicy, rich and with just the right amount of sweet fat.

Ingredients

  • 200g cooked duck meat, shredded
  • 85g hoisin sauce
  • 12 chinese-style pancakes
  • 1/4 cucumber, cut into thin strips (approx 6cm)
  • 24 chive sprigs
  • extra hoisin sauce for dipping, to serve

Method

  1. Place the shredded duck meat in a bowl and stir through the hoisin sauce. Set aside until ready to assemble.
  2. Cut two long 4-5cm strips out of each pancake, discarding of the outer edges.
  3. Position a pancake strip vertical on a surface and place a couple of cucumber strands horizontally at the top. Spoon on a small amount of shredded duck so the fibres also sit horizontally with a little overhang either side of the pancake. Roll up the pancake to enclose the filling.
  4. Carefully tie and knot the roll closed using a sprig of chive and trim away any long ends to create a neat finish.
  5. Serve on a plate with a little extra hoisin sauce for dipping.
