    Bergy's Note:

    The duck should be carved at the table. First the skin is cut away in thin slices and served with a manderine pancake (see "Bergy Dim Sum" for recipe), a green onion that has been sliced to make a fan of the end. this is dipped in the hoi sin sauce and is brushed onto the pancake. the onion the skin, afew slivers of cuke are then wrapped in the pancake and eaten. This is the most important course. The duck meat can then be placed on another platter and served with Manderin pancakes or quickly stir fried with red and green sliced peppers and green onions.

      This recipe is as best as the ones I'd normally get from restaurant, and it just taste so much better. The result of this is so much worth the wait during preparation time. Believe me, you won't even feel time when you're savouring every pieces. I'd highly recommend this to any duck meat lovers. Will make again. Saves me much money from buying in restaurants.
