These mini cheesecakes are a tasty, surprisingly quick and impressive dessert to prepare in advance and plate up when you're having dinner guests, everyone is sure to love them!

Duck is my favourite type of poultry, it’s a good source of protein and can be super tasty and succulent when cooked well. This easy 10 step recipe goes for maximum flavour of course, so we are leaving the skin on the duck breast and serving with a lovely red wine jus.
