It’s great to discover a favourite restaurant dish can easily be made at home. Thus it was with crispy aromatic duck, a regular order at our local Chinese eatery.
This classic restaurant dish from the 1970’s has all but disappeared from our menus now, as the food trend has moved from sauces poured onto food to food served on sauces (or with foams).
In the past the emphasis was weighted towards the sauce … which led to heavy sauces, unbalanced flavours and the duck skulking somewhere in the background. With a couple of tricks, the meal can be re-balanced, letting the duck shine through once again.
An impressive meal to serve to guests, or enjoy as a family, we present duck a l’orange.
