Highlights / General details

China is one of the first countries to domesticate ducks for the table. Cooking methods include steaming, boiling, stewing, roasting, frying and so on. Historical records show that Beijing Roast Duck started some 300 years ago, and roasting duck first began in Nanjing, then known as Jingling capital city of Jiangsu province. At that time, Jinling was the capital of the early Ming dynasty. When the capital moved to Beijing, the dish was also brought to Beijing as a delicacy on the imperial menu. In about 1630, a eunuch wrote a book on the imperial diet and referred to roast goose, pork, chicken and duck as the most favorite courses in the palace. Ideally, the duck must be the white Beijing variety. It should be 65 days old when slaughtered and weigh 2.5kgs. Every 6 hours of the last 20 days of their life, they queue obediently for a force feeding of highly nutritious mush that thickens the layer of fat under the skin. It takes four days to prepare a duck for the oven. Tonight's dinner will be served at one of the most famous roast duck restaurant.
