January 18: Peking Duck Day
I can't recall eating Peking Duck. I've had duck and I've had duck in Chinese restaurants, but what exactly is Peking Duck? Well, according to this About.com site, peking duck takes a very long time to cook. Over 10 hours! Looks like most restaurants in the US don't follow this method (plus, I'm fairly certain it would be considered an unsafe prep method) and just roast a duck for a very long time with s mix of spices. AllRecipes has a recipe that seems a lot more do-able than the About.com one. I really can't see myself making Peking Duck at home, but I'll have to try it the next time I go out for Chinese.
