I love duck dish . However staying in a western country , often the duck dish we have is roast duck. I miss those braise duck my auntie used to cook during Chinese New Year. She is a good cook , sad to say she is not around anymore. I do not really have a chance to learn from her but I do try to do the braise duck my mom used to cook once or twice.
Nope is not easy to cook a whole duck for a newbie like me so I got only some duck leg to try out my dish. It turn out good and my beloved love it and we have a heartily lunch on that day. Here is my little try out recipe on this braised duck noodles.
