Binging with Babish: Peking Duck from A Christmas Story

    A Christmas Story, beyond its bunny suits and leg lamps, is fondly remembered by Generation X-ers for its unfortunate portrayal of Chinese-Americans, and their alluring turkey alternative: peking duck. Crisp skin, juicy meat, deep flavor, all wrapped up in a Mandarin-style pancake with thinly sliced cucumbers, scallions, and hoisin sauce? Fa la la la la, la la la la.

        Well here’s what can be improved: you should roast the duck vertically and use only heat from the bottom.

                A lot of this is right out of the opening scene from Eat Drink Man Woman. Only in that scene, you see the cook actually blow with his lips to inflate the duck.
