Peking Roast Duck

$55 For 1 people
Detail
Peking Roast Duck

Peking duck, also known as Peking Roasted Duck or Beijing Kaoya, is a dish of great antiquity from Beijing that can trace back to the imperial era. Nowadays, Peking Duck had become one of the specialties of the capital and a national symbol of China, favored by tourists and diplomats alike. For instance, Henry Kissinger, the former Secretary of State of the United States, came to savor this cate, during his two visits to China in 1971 and in 1976. It has also been a favorite delicacy for various political leaders ranging from Cuban Fidel Castro to former German chancellor Helmut Kohl.

 

The delicacy is characterized by its crisp skin shining date-red in color and tender texture, with authentic versions serving mostly the skin and little meat, sliced in front of the diners by the cook. The hot Peking Roast Duck will be brought to the dining table by the chef where he will slice it into more than 100 thin flakes, each having its piece of crispy skin. The meat is often eaten with spring onion, cucumber and sweet bean sauce with pancake rolled around the fillings. Sometimes pickled radish is also inside, and other sauces can be used. The remaining duck with meat and bones can be cooked in three ways. The traditional way is to be cooked into a broth. The meat together with bones can also be stir-fried with sweet bean sauce, or rapidly sautéed and served with salt and Sichuan pepper.

 

Besides the traditional one, many restaurants offer an All Duck Banquet - various dishes cooked with the offal and juices of the duck, surrounding the main dish. It will be sure to give you satisfaction and enjoyment when dining.

 

Duck has been roasted in China since the Southern and Northern Dynasties(386-589). Up until the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279), ducks were roasted in the area around Jinling (ancient name for Nanjing). A variation of roast duck was prepared for the Emperor of China in the Yuan dynasty(1271-1368). The Peking Roast Duck that came to be associated with the term was fully developed during the later Ming dynasty when the rulers moved their capital city to Beijing from Jinling and by then, Peking Duck was one of the main dishes on imperial court menus and was highly regarded by emperors and other members of the ruling classes. By the Qianlong Period (1736–1796) of the Qing dynasty, the popularity of Peking Duck spread to the upper classes. The first restaurant specializing in Peking Duck, Bianyifang, was established in the Xianyukou, close to Qianmen of Beijing in 1416.

 

Preparation

 

Raising the duck

Newborn ducks are raised specially in a free range environment for the first 45 days of their lives, and force fed 4 times a day for the next 15–20 days, resulting in ducks that weigh 5–7 kg. The force-feeding of the ducks led to an alternate name for the animal, Peking Stuffed Duck. 

 

Seasoning the duck

A suitable fattened White Beijing Ducks are slaughtered, plucked, eviscerated and rinsed thoroughly with water. Air is pumped under the skin through the neck cavity to separate the skin from the fat. The duck is then plunged in boiling water for 1 to 5 minutes, then hung to dry. This will tighten the skin and help the duck to achieve its traditional crispy texture. The duck is then glazed with a layer of potentially spiced and flavored maltose syrup. A marinade of traditional flavorings, including soy sauce and five-spice powder, and more maltose, is then applied inside the body cavity. This will flavor the duck during the next step. The duck is then left to dry for between 24 hours and several days in a cool, dry place, which allows the skin to crisp while roasting.

 

Roasting the duck

Hitherto, there are two traditional schools of cuisine for the duck cooking, namely closed oven and hung oven.

 

Closed-oven style

Peking duck is originally roasted in a conventional closed oven, allowing the meat to be slowly cooked through the convection of heat within the oven. Controlling the fuel and the temperature is the main skill. In closed-oven style, duck meat is combined well with the fat under the skin, and therefore is juicy and tender.

 

Hung-oven style

The hung oven, also known as open oven, was developed in the imperial kitchens during the Qing Dynasty. It is designed to roast up to 20 ducks at the same time with an open fire fueled by fruit hardwood from peach or pear trees. The ducks are hung on hooks above the fire and roasted at a temperature of 270 °C (525 °F) for 30–40 minutes. While the ducks are roasting, the chef may use a pole to dangle each duck closer to the fire for 30-second intervals. By the means of hung oven, the fat is usually melted during the cooking process, so the skin is more crispy.

 

 

The initial technique has been perpetuated by very few restaurants among which the household name Bianyi Fang is the representative. The second method is relatively well-known and used with great success by the notable Quan Ju De Restaurant, first established in 1864, which won the China Renowned Trademark as well.

Shanghai Acrobatic Show

  Chinese Acrobatics is one of the oldest performing arts. Its history can be traced back to Neolithic times. It is believed that acrobatics grew out of labor and self-defense skills, which people practiced and demonstrated during their leisure time. The early performance is "walking on three-meter-high stilts while juggling seven gaggers". Then it developed into an entire art formTogether with the developing economy, acrobatics is also evolving into a kind of performing art. It became well known worldwide while performances are presented along the Silk Road. In Europe and North America, Chinese acrobatic performances always attract large audiences.

  Many acrobatic shows come from the art performance of living skills and labor skills. Acrobatic show has a history of over 2000 years in China. It is named as “Baixi” in Han dynasty, “sanle” in Sui and Tang Dynasty, named as Acrobatic after Tang and Song dynasty in order to differentiate from acts in other forms.

  There are nine specialties in acrobatic.

  Acrobatic pays lot of attentions on leg and waist training. Since ancient, Chinese acrobat focus on the position “top”. There are many “Stand on one’s head”, and “somersault” depicted in ancient fresco and earthenwares. For Chinese acrobatic, including actor of ancient show, he should has very deep Kung Fu foundation.

  “Stable” out of “steep” while “move” is out of “stable” are both for showing a very quiet and accurate hard skill. Such as walking on the steel rod which require all actions for stable. The moving bench and ladder, one after another, but needs the man on the top find the stable from the move and it require a stable head, super skill, and hard training . It shows fully the super skill of our mankind conquering danger and difficulties.

  “Unique” is out of the “usual”. From none to everything, it fully shows our mankind creating the world. Different from western magic, which focus on colorful stage property, Chinese magic only needs very simple property. From cuisine to fish and bird alive, a simple long sleeve gown can turn out everything. Or one somersault can turn into a firing bronze basin or another one for a fish bowl with water and fish.

  Hard and soft Kung Fu combines. Kicking is mostly acted by women. The actor lies and kick thing including wine jar, colorful bowl, clock, tables, ladder, wooden pole, wooden plate, drum and bell,  from weightless umbrella to heavy living persons. Things kicked is rotating quickly, jumping back and forth. From the smooth vase to heavy wooden desk, everything is kicked so quickly only for image, not for picture.

  Super power and Nimble dexterous somersault combines. According to history record, the seat for human pyramid is quite amazing. Previously history record, 18 men seats on one man while 6 men seats on one man both appeared. Over a thousand jin including eight men seats on one man fully show the program well. The traditional “ Pulling the bow” and “playing with knife” are both heavy-loaded hard Kung Fu.

  There are a great amount of living utensils and labor instruments used in the acrobatic show including bowl, plate, altar, handleless cup, rod, whip, fork, pole, ladder, desk, chair, umbrella and cap. Those normal things is changeable in the hands of acrobatic, fully exhibited a close tie between labor life with Chinese acrobatic show.

  Simple arts and body arts combine. “playing fun with altar”, “rotating plate” combine both Porcelain painting with traditional Chinese acrobatic. In the kicking show, the colorful umbrella and colorful peddle the same offer feeling of ancient aesthetics.

  Chinese acrobatic is quite accommodated in different style and various places. From market, theatre, lane, room with place of hundreds of people to only one, Chinese acrobatic is fit for any places with thousands years of history.

  Chinese acrobatic has an intimate heritage tradition. One generation after another generation, regional, blood-related and sister arts,  previous acrobats are always inherited and passed around.

I was so pleased with my tour of Beijing! The tour picked me up at my hotel and we saw the Forbidden City, Great Wall, had a fantastic lunch, toured a jade store, and got a foot massage. The tour guide was funny, kind, and efficient! She showed genuine concern for our needs and everyone on the tour was genuinely happy! This is the tour to book with. You will see all the sites and you’ll have such a pleasant time. I would recommend it to anyone!

Thank you for the hard work and dedication in making my trip great. Every detail from local flights, hotels, personal drivers and the local tour guides were fantastic. Before the actual trip I called several times and was able to get pleasant help from a kind agent who answered all my quest. Each day was better than the other I even wished I had more time in the country to get to explore more cities in depth. Shanghai was jaw dropping and in Beijing I was able to catch the flag raising ceremony in the greatest square with great accuracy and tradition. The local food was phenomenal and I had the pleasure to join a local family for one dinner and it was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the ease of everything in the country and I recommend the company to anyone who is interested in a complete Chinese experience.

Excellent guide and bus driver throughout the vacation. Accommodation was excellent and the pace was perfect. All the people were great to travel with and no one was late getting back on the coach after we stopped for photo opportunities, shopping stops or toilet breaks. The Chinese meals supplied for lunch were excellent. Over all had an excellent time with my fellow travellers on this holiday. We had a wonderful experience without any hiccups, from the time we arrived and met up with our beautiful tour director Haha and our fellow travelers who were a fun group to tour with. This group tour was very good value for money and i could tell it was all the travelers wanted.

The holiday of a life time our adventure in the Great Wall was without a doubt our favourite family trip. The comfort and beauty of the country, the incredibly caring crew, the delicious food, the history we learned from our competent and friendly tour director, along with the stunning beauty of the views hiking around the area and into small remote alleyways in the hutongs was very relaxing. The accommodation was more than adequate with rooms being serviced everyday. There was ample deck space to lounge, reading or talking. The staff on the hotel were lovely and attentive. Excellent.

The services we received from Jenny the tour director was excellent. She was well informed, extremely helpful as regards the requirements and accommodation of my husband and myself. We welcomed a few of her suggestions which were given in a professional and constructive manner, not at all pushy as we’ve found some operators to be. Very professional and we look forward to experiencing more of the services in future. We would recommend this company and would use them again.

As an American visitor ready to tour China i wanted to get in touch with Chinese People and their culture and traditions through the fabulous regions and landscapes as well as their fascinating cities and lovely countryside and I achieved it throughout the tour. The highlight of my tour was the mighty Yangtze River cruise that went smoothly and was also fun. Eating Chinese food in the local joints also was a nice part of further discovery. Highly recommended.

It was a great trip and the guides were especially enjoyable. One of the guides was really kind since as we toured the sites she gave us the facts and was able to bring humor into the conversations as we spent time together. We were very happy with the arrangements that were provided like picking us up at the airport, making sure we got to the next stop ok, everything appeared very well organized. About the hotels they helped us book we really appreciate the comfort of all inclusive basis.
