Peking Duck

One thing that I enjoyed while we were in China was Peking Duck. For the real experience you have to go to Quanjude which has been serving duck since 1864. As my husband likes to say, "Lincoln could have eaten there." We ate there one afternoon with some of the staff from one of the universities that we were teaching at. J was given the certificate for that duck. We ate duck number 018074 and have a certificate to prove it.

On our last day we went out for our last Peking Duck for that trip.

Ducks lined up and ready to be roasted.

There is the fire where the ducks will be roasted.

A good roasted duck will have skin that will melt in your mouth. Get a thin pancake and put some plum sauce on then cucumber and green onion and then some duck. Wrap it up and enjoy.

Roast duck is good.

The kids even enjoyed it. After three weeks of living in China J learned how to pose Chinese style for his pictures.
