Peckish Pandas Chinese Peking Duck

    I love to eat peking duck at any given opportunity. I fondly remember when my husband and I were first dating, he introduced me to this delicious dish. The restaurant we visited had a lovely duck sauce that we couldn't get enough of. Our family members all enjoy duck so much, that we have to share the duck out with fairness in mind. I was fortunate to meet a nice Chinese lady who showed me how she stuffs, roasts and chops the duck. She also showed me how to make a secret 'chef' duck sauce. You can watch the video on youtube. Type in 'Peckish Pandas Chinese Peking Duck'. I say why have a Woolies roast chook, when you can relish the flavours of peking duck. That's if you have time of course.
