Beijing Duck


Hi everyone!


Today I'd like to introduce one of China's most famous food.


Beijing DuckBeijing Duck (Peking Duck), or Peking Roast Duck is a famous duck dish from Beijing that has been prepared since the Yuan Dynasty, 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 are bred specially for the dish, which after 65 days are slaughtered and seasoned before it is roasted in a closed oven or a hung oven. When eating Peking roast duck, one wraps the duck skin and meat along with slivers of spring onions and cucumber - dabbed with sweet sauce (tian mian jiang) - with a slice of thin pancake. This is the most authentic way to savor the rich flovor of Peking roast duck. More than two million roast ducks are sold on average annually. The two most notable restaurants in Beijing which serve this delicacy are Quanjude and Bianyifang, two centuries old establishments which have become household names.


If you plan to visit China, this is just what you can't miss.
