How Peking Duck Is Made | Food Skills

  • Published on Nov 20, 2017
  • Peking duck has long been a staple in NYC. But at Decoy, chef Joe Ng is taking the classic Chinese dish to new heights. Known for its crispy, golden skin and tender meat, Peking duck is typically topped with hoisin and wrapped in thin pancakes. At Decoy, chef Ng has added toppings like sesame-peanut sauce, cranberry, and pico de gallo into the mix, putting a multi-cultural spin on more traditional Chinese fare. Decoy's duck-centric menu is perfect for Chinese-food fans looking to broaden their horizons.

    God fucking damnit I love peking duck. I prefer the questionable establishments in the true immigrant part of Manhattan's china town over fancy places though. A plate of greasy duck and a bowl of white rice for $10. Was it down with a beer.

    I've yet to eat duck but for some reason every recpe tells about getting ride of the fat. I thought fat was tasty!

    First you kill a creature with eyes, a voice, and an intestinal tract. Then you pretend you're something other than a psychopath, next you develop "paunch" (for both women and men) and rank BO. Let's not forget erectile dysfunction and cancerous growths.

    ive always found itso weird that so many different chefs always say that people wouldnt buy traditional cooking from them so they had to adapt, i just cant wrap my head around the idea that peoplego to an ''ethnic'' restaurant and then complain about what they can buy and how it doesnt fit their taste. like just do some research before going, how hard is that?

    "If all these Chinese people are eating traditional Chinese food at home, why don't they serve that in the restaurants?"
    It's because so many Americans refuse to do anything other than General-F**king-Tsao's chicken, claiming that it's real Chinese Food. The number of times I've been asked what my favorite Chinese food is, only to be met with a blank stare and a "ohhhhhhh uhhh my favorite is Sweet Sour Pork" is embarrassing.
    You could claim the problem is restaurant owners only making that fake junk, but so many places make REAL Chinese dishes, only for white people to come in and order that fake shit... It's just market demand.

      They aren't for the guy's english. They're for deaf people or people learning english and struggle understanding accented speaking. Correcting someone's speech isn't why subtitles exist.

    I wanna try Duck, but not sure how I would like it. Anybody else had a fear of Duck and tried it? (Peking or any other variation) What does it really taste like? I'm a simple man, I like meat and potatoes, so duck/lamp/goat are something I haven't tried yet.

    • Rebecca Loptson
      Rebecca Loptson 6 months ago

      Try it in many ways even if your first try wasn't great, it's the same for many foods out there, it's a matter of how it's prepared. ie you might not like raw carrot but like it mashed with potato or sweed. If you like sweet things, try hoisin with duck, if you like spicy try it prepared with salt and dried chilli. It's like someone saying they don't like roast chicken but they like it at nando's. The way something is prepared changes how it tastes, but the core flavor of the meat is always there and should work with the spices/preparations.

    It's not the 1950s anymore. People are generally preferring the true takes of dishes from different cultures. We don't want an American Pallate crutch anymore (Though it does taste good, to me it just feels less satisfying having Americanized food than it is having the true culture). I just wish some of the smaller towns in my area would realize the growing need for authentic cultural food, and encourage people to open up restaurants without feeling they can't satisfy their customers.

    I'm sorry, is this channel solely dedicated to convincing the average white person to try different cultural foods or is it to highlight restaurants that are serving fantastic dishes? Because the content lately has been centered around solely trying to convince white people that there is more to life than hamburgers and pasta. Showcasing only white people enjoying the food.

I know they don't exactly have Buzz Feed money, but getting Sean and the Food Skills team on the road once in a while to other places would be awesome. I mean, there's a world outside of New York. There's Kansas City barbeque. There's northwestern fish weirdness like gooey duck. There's literal tex-mex. Hell, you could go outside of London in the UK and do some shit with black pudding and the art of a good fry-up.
