Mothers’ Day Peking duck pancakes
Here’s a way to your Mother’s heart – that is if she’s not a vegan!
So get quacking down to your local Chinatown, pick and pluck a duck to take home. They’ll cut it for you and take the bones away of you ask nicely.
This is the fastest way I know to get that Peking feeling without lining up for the Duck Nazi on Smith Street or paying Flower Drum prices.
