How Peking Duck permeated through Asian culture to become an Australian food staple.
Peking Duck is a special type of roast duck originated from Beijing, China and has been around for thousands of years, in fact way back in the Imperial Era. Characterised by the crunch and its thin, crisp skin, Peking duck has been a favourite for local and international leaders such as Henry Kissinger, Fidel Castro and Richard Nixon which allowed for it to be introduced into the western world back in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
The method of making this type of roast duck varies from restaurant to restaurant around the world but always has some staples that remain the same everywhere in the world. Air is pumped under the skin to separate it from the meat then it go through a process of marinating, placed in a hanging or closed over and roasted for a minimum of 24 hours in order to get a golden and crispy-skin that is renowned for the signature taste and crunch of Peking Duck.
