Dan when I was a kid there was a restaurant here that made a Mandarin Duck dish. That was a kinda dried, crispy, and fried duck topped with Chinese gravy. I have the recipe for the gravy and the batter already but do you know how they dried the duck out? The meat was dry but not over dry

Thanks Dan – very nice video. It had me smiling all the way through as it reminded me of my late mother who also prepared duck on special occasions, albeit according to a German recipe. To this day duck and raw potato dumplings remains my favorite dish. The inclusion of your mother is a wonderful aspect of your videos.
