Aromatic five-spice powder is used extensively in Hong Kong cuisine and is beautiful as a seasoning for fatty duck meat.

Duck larb

There is no doubt that a good larb is a little complex, with lots of ingredients – but with bags of flavour, it’s worth the effort. Lemongrass, lime leaves and good fish sauce are essential elements along with the roasted rice, which is what larb is all about.  

Sweet sang choy bao

Being a fattier meat than chicken, duck sang choy bao is just that more delicious. With ginger, cloves plus honey, it’s slightly sweet and has plenty of umami.

Sichuan beer sweet

Lap mei fan (Hong Kong cured duck rice)

This traditional Chinese clay pot  dish serves up a variety of cured meats with a homemade sweet soy sauce.  

Duck à l’orange

This is a dish best planned in advance, as it requires two days of marinading to give the duck the most intense orange flavour and such incredible tenderness. Well worth the while!

Duck with bamboo shoot curry
