I'm creating a recipe, which is essentially a duck parcel.
The problem I have is how to make a parcel.
Filo pastry worked but is too dry.
I then read Giorgio Locatelli's idea on use very fine potato sheets, where the starch will help it to glue, but I couldn't get this to work (may be I had the wrong potato, I don't know, I couldn't create a parcel, it only worked as a 'basket' with no lid).
The potato would have been great because it's not a very powerful taste and would not have overpowered the honey duck.
So, filo was too dry. Potatoes may have worked but I couldn't get it to work and of course bacon is obvious but the taste would be too over powering.
So, what else can be used to create a parcel around food?
