For Boneless Duck in Sguazet:

Pat the duck dry.

Heat 1/4 cup of olive oil in a heavy large casserole over high
heat. Add duck and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook over high
heat, stirring often, until lightly golden. (About 10 minutes)

Strain off about 3/4 of the fat (discard or reserve for another
use.) Add onions and pancetta to the casserole, and sprinkle with
salt and pepper. Saute until golden, about 8 minutes.

Add chicken livers, heat and stir for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, strain the soaked porcini mushrooms, reserving the
liquid. Rinse them and chop them up coarsely. Strain the liquid
through a fine sieve or cheesecloth and set aside. To the casserole
add porcini, bay leaves, rosemary and cloves and stir for 5 minutes.

Add the wine and cook, stirring, until wine is nearly
evaporated. Add tomato paste and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring to
coat all ingredients. Add reserved mushroom soaking liquid and
Chicken Stock and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover partially, and
simmer 45 minutes.

Remove bay leaves and any rosemary stems. Skim fat from surface
and adjust seasonings.

Set aside.
