Peking Duck is one of the most sophisticated arts of Chinese Cooking and the Peking Duck House prepares them well in advance.
First, air is first pumped into the duck to stretch and loosen the skin, and then boiled water is repeatedly spread over the bird, which is then carefully dried. The dried skin is rubbed all over with maltose and the duck is then roasted in a hot oven for a period of time until the meat is tender and the skin crispy. This advanced method of preparation for Peking Duck is to accommodate the customer and have their duck served within 15 minutes of ordering time.
The duck is served with house-made pancakes, green scallions, fresh cucumbers and special sauce.
