Try out our simple version using palm sugar (hence why it’s a darker colour) with a shorter steaming time. Most importantly, it’s delicious!

Simple Roast Duck with Pancakes

Chef-In-Residence
Duck is delicious in almost any form. I have fond memories of studying in London, then going out on weekends with friends to a Chinese restaurant. There, we wrapped pieces of juicy duck meat, crispy skin, julienned cucumbers and some spring onion into a tender, crepe-like pancake. Man that was really delicious.

So of course I decided to…   More »
