Cooking time 12mins
Preheat oven to 410F
Prepare the camembert: Cut the Camembert and mash with a fork with wine and finely chopped garlic. Place the mixture on the pastry sheet and fold to make a rectangle. Bake 10 minutes.
Prepare the duck breast: Score the skin without reaching the meat and then fry on both sides in a hot pan so that they brown. Finish cooking in oven for 10 to 12 minutes at 410. Add salt and pepper just before serving.
Peel apples, core and cut into fairly thick slices. Use the pan you cooked the duck breasts in and brown the apples a few minutes and then keep them in oven for 5 minutes at 410.
Cider sauce - Sauté finely chopped shallots in a knob of butter. Pour the cider and reduce. When cooked add the cream. Salt and pepper
