Made for IPA
Our award winning Duck Fritons. Made by us in Berkshire.
Inspired by a rural Southern French delicacy. Duck Fritons are crisp morsels of Free Range British Duck Skin. Rich, savoury and intensely delicious with a glass of IPA.
The Story of Duck Fritons
Based on a rural Gascon delicacy, Fritons de Canard. The duck for our Fritons is sourced from Creedy Carver, a free-range British family duck farm in Crediton, South Devon. One of the very few free-range duck farms in the UK, the ducks are given quality space to roam and swim freely. The duck is all the more tasty as a result and Creedy Carver supply many of the Michelin-starred restaurants and top-end butchers throughout the UK.
We buy the skin that Creedy slice off the shoulder as they pack the whole bird ready for sale. We then simply cure the skins with Dorset Sea Salt, render & confit them to build up their intense, savoury flavour and bring them up to a high temperature to give them their tasty crunch.
Our Fritons are all made to this traditional method and from just two ingredients: free-range Devonshire duck and Dorset Sea Salt. That’s it.
Made for IPA or something equally fruity
Fritons de Canard originate in the South of France (Gascony, Toulouse & Lyon), where they are served with a green salad or as a little snack accompanying a glass of beer or red wine.
IPAs, for me, mirror the fruity, tannic red wine of the region - very hoppy and very fruity. As a result, they pair beautifully with our Duck Fritons: the salt enhances the fruity flavours and the fat mops up the bitter notes from the hops.
But they are lovely with anything you would normally pair with a simple, hard cheese – red wine, stout - and they are stunning with a crisp cider too.
Of course – our Duck Fritons are made from just two natural ingredients: Creedy Carver free-range duck skin and Dorset Sea Salt.
