Step 1

Prepare new potatoes: Wash and put the potatoes in a baking dish. Add olive oil. Mix well so that all the potatoes are well coated with oil. Put the dish in oven 45 minutes. Turn them regularly. You can then remove from the oven. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Well cooked, the potatoes should be soft. Reserve.

Step 2

To make sauce with honey-ginger bread: In a saucepan, mix the veal base in 2 1/2 cups of water. Then slowly bring to a boil while stirring and add the honey. Cut the slices of gingerbread into cubes. Stir for about 5 min and reserve.

Step 3

Prepare the duck breasts, putting them in a stove with a slight drizzle of olive oil. Brown them and be careful not to overcook them, they should be pink. Add salt and pepper.

Step 4

To serve: Mask some of the potatoes with a fork, place on the corner of the plate. Place some other new potatoes on the center of the plate. Then put your bread-honey sauce over the duck breast.
