Rosella Rice: Bring 1 litre of water to running boil in a large pot. Add the salt, orange peel and red rice and cook for 45 minutes over medium heat till al dente, drain and spread the rice out onto a tray to cool for 10 minutes. Combine the cooked rice with cream, rosella jelly and 100ml water. Cook over medium heat until the rice becomes creamy and firm. Gently fold through the steamed cauliflower flowerets. In the meantime prepare the cauliflower cream.

Cauliflower cream: Bring 1 litre of water to running boil in a large pot. Cut the cauliflower into 5cm pieces, rinse and then cook in boiling water for 10 minutes until cooked. Drain and put back into the pot with the cream star anise and salt. Continue to cook over low heat for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until soft. At this point let the mixture rest for 10 minutes, then remove the star anise and blend until a smooth and velvety texture.

To prepare the duck: Pre heat your oven to 200C. Remove the duck from the package and clean away the excess of fat with paper towel, place on an oven tray lined with oven paper ,cook for 10 minutes or until the skin becomes golden.

To serve: At this stage we're ready to plate the dish, lay a base of cream of cauliflower in the center of the plate, add the prepared rice to one side, then place the confit duck on the top, add the final touch of a teaspoon of Vincotto over the duck and a few drops of olive oil around the cauliflower cream. Enjoy!
