A world-famous duck has landed in Xiamen. However, it is not the lovely Donald from Disney animation or the popular giant rubber duck designed by the Holland artist Florentijn Hofman, but the delicious, crispy, and juicy Peking duck (or Beijing roasted duck).
 
 
Peking duck is a famous Beijing dish. The dish originated in the Northern and Southern Dynasties of China. The duck meat used for this dish is of a special, high quality, and the meat is prepared with a charcoal fire fed by fruit wood. When the duck is ready, the color of its meat is a beautiful red hue, the meat is fatty but not greasy, and the skin is crispy.
 

Since the founding of new China, Beijing roast duck has increased in fame and popularity. Premier Zhou Enlai is said to have frequently enjoyed this dish and to have paid particular attention to promoting Peking duck to foreign guests. China’s most famous Peking duck brand is Quan Ju De.
 
 
Now, Xiamen residents and visitors who have a hankering for expertly prepared Peking duck are in luck! From May 15th to May 19th, Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen is hosting the famous roast duck master, chef Wang Zheng (from Shangri-La Hotel, Beijing) to guest cook at the hotel’s Chinese flavors festival. A deluxe wine dinner will also be launched on May 18th.
