Duck breast roast
Remove the skin from one of the duck breasts. Cut small rectangles of semi-cooked foie gras. Season the 2 duck breasts on the flesh side with salt and pepper. Make a grid with a knife on the fat of the duck breast. Lay the duck breast with the fat face down on the board. Position the foie gras in the center along the entire length.
Cover with the other duck breast. Tie the roast, sear it in a frying pan over medium heat on the fat side for 2 minutes, turn it over and sear it on the flesh side over high heat for 2 minutes.
Cover with cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
On a cling film, arrange the thin slices of bacon overlapping them a little. Spread the mushroom mixture on top then arrange the duck breast. With a brush, brush it with mustard. Gently roll up and wrap tightly in cling film.
Put in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 210°C. Spread the puff pastry on the work surface. Take the duck breast out of the freezer, remove the cling film and place it on the dough, roll it up in this one. Brush the puff pastry with egg yolk then draw shapes with the back of the knife blade on top.
Sprinkle with a little fleur de sel. Bake at 210°C for 30 minutes. Take the duck breast out of the oven, let it rest on a rack for about ten minutes before cutting it into slices about 1 cm thick.
