Directions for Mushroom consommé:

Strain mixture (remove mushroom) and season with salt and pepper.

Directions for Mushroom Ragu:
Clean mushrooms with a cloth that has been soaked in water.
Finely chop each mushroom type individually, placing each type in separate bowls.
Place butter, oil, bay leaf, and thyme in a pan, add each type of mushroom individually and sweat off. Once there is little colour left in the mushrooms, add white wine and reduce. Repeat with each mushroom type individually.
Add all mushrooms together, remove from heat, and add butter and season to taste.
Chop 1 carrot, celery and onion to create a mirepoix. Rub oil on duck, season (both inside and out).
In a roasting pan, add water, 100ml red wine, 100ml port, and place duck on top of mirepoix. Roast @ 175 degrees for 45 minutes, uncovered (check frequently to ensure vegetables do no burn). To check if ready, poke a stick in the middle of the meat to see if meat comes off the bone (if not, continue cooking). Once cooked, separate duck from bones and flesh.
In a separate pot, sweat remaining finely diced carrot, celery, onion and tomato paste. Finely chop meat and crispy skin and add to pot with remaining wine and port. Let reduce and add any leftover sauce from the roasted duck pan.
Once mixed, add bread to help soak up any jus, mixing on a high temperature until meat begins to shred.
Add sage and season to taste.
Creating Pasta Rolls:
Place 1cm thick filling in each pasta square, roll and brush with water.
Vacuum seal rolls and cook @ 74.5 degrees for 45 minutes.
Once cooked, cut rolls into 2cm thick disks and place back in oven until golden brown.
In a non-stick pan, sift parmesan until golden brown. Put aside.
Place duck jus on plate, add pasta disks, then mushroom ragu on pasta and to finish, add parmesan crisps to the top.
