  1. Heat duck fat in a large heavy base saucepan. Add duck legs in two batches, skin side down, and cook until browned all over. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add onion, garlic, carrot, celery and thyme and cook for 5 minutes or until starting to brown. Pour in wine and simmer for 2 minutes. Return duck legs to pan. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, covered for 1 1⁄2 hours or until duck falls away easily from the bone. Using tongs, remove the duck legs and roughly shred. Return meat to sauce and discard bones.
