Luv-a-Duck, Australia’s favourite duck meat brand, is preparing to celebrate National Duck Day on the 23rd of May with none other than MasterChef winner Diana Chan as their brand ambassador. This exciting new partnership promises to bring a taste of tantalising duck dishes to households across the nation, proving that everyone can cook up a storm with duck.
Born in Malaysia and a self-confessed duck enthusiast, Chan emerged as the victor of MasterChef’s ninth season in 2017. Since then, she has flourished as a television host, menu designer, product creator, and restaurateur. Chan’s lifelong passion for cooking and duck shines through in the three exclusive Luv-a-Duck recipes she has crafted for home cooks to enjoy. These delectable dishes include Seared Luv-a-Duck Duck Breast with Nashi pears, honey, and star anise; Luv-a-Duck Whole Roasted Duck with a cinnamon and orange glaze; and Luv-a-Duck Peking Duck Breast with egg noodles, five-spice sauce, and fresh cucumber salad.
For those who can’t resist the idea of cooking alongside the talented Diana Chan, there’s good news. On National Duck Day, the MasterChef winner will host a ‘Cook-Duck-at-Home with Diana’ livestream event on Instagram, where participants can ask questions and learn the ins and outs of cooking with duck.
Jessie Lo, Luv-a-Duck Senior Brand Manager, is thrilled to have Diana Chan as the National Duck Day brand ambassador, noting that Chan had already been using Luv-a-Duck products and sharing duck recipes on her social channels before their partnership began.
Duck has always played a pivotal role in Chan’s life, being a staple in Malaysian cuisine for both everyday meals and special occasions. Chan fondly recalls cooking duck with her mother, an experience that inspired her National Duck Day recipes. She emphasises that cooking with duck is surprisingly easy and can be enjoyed in under 20 minutes for a quick family dinner or for a gourmet affair.
Luv-a-Duck, founded in 1968, is Australia’s most popular duck meat brand, boasting a range of high-quality duck products available at leading supermarkets, grocers, butchers, and restaurants. Their product offerings include whole duck, raw breast and leg portions, duck fat, and a cooked range of breast and leg products, ensuring Australians can indulge in delicious duck dishes anytime they desire.
