It was the first time I brought home the carcass of a Peking Duck. Tita Portia and I shared 1 whole duck a few days ago and the waiter gave us the bones. We have eaten at Peking Garden a lot of times but never cared for it.
I experimented with Peking Duck Sotanghon soup yesterday because we had a meeting here in my house and my classmates said it was really so good! I am very glad it turned out well and so easy to cook.
