    How to cook the famous Peking Duck

    Peking Duck Recipe, or Peking Roast Duck is a famous duck dish from Beijing, China that has been prepared since the imperial era, and is now considered one of China’s national foods.

    The dish is prized for the thin, crispy skin, with authentic versions of the dish serving mostly the skin and little meat, sliced in front of the diners by the cook. Ducks bred specially for the dish are slaughtered after 65 days and seasoned before being roasted in a closed or hung oven. The meat is often eaten with pancakes, spring onions, and hoisin sauce or sweet noodle sauce.
