Peking_duckJanuary 18th is Peking Duck Day.

Peking Duck is a famous duck dish that originated in Beijing, China. Roasted duck has been around a very long time. This version was a main dish on court menus during the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644).

Not only does the preparation utilize a special cooking method, it also requires a specific breed of duck, the Pekin.

The cooked duck has a thin, crispy skin and succulent meat. If served authentically, the dish is mostly skin with a little meat. It is served with spring-pancakes, green onions, and either hoisin sauce or sweet bean sauce.

Try some traditionally Peking Duck today.
