Folding the Perfect Duck Crepe

Our Peking duck recipe may be a secret, but we're glad to show you how to roll the perfect Peking duck pancake.

1. On a flat Chinese-style crepe, arrange the necessary ingredients -- shredded fresh scallions, duck meat, crispy roasted skin and a splatter of Hoisin sauce.

2. Ensure that you have the right proportion of ingredients. Too much will break the crepe and make for messy bites. Then, roll the crepe slowly so that none of the ingredients fall out of the crepe. Your crepe should look like a small, open-ended burrito.

3. Alternatively, you can fold the crepe into a flat cone shape to create a "pocket." It could get messy, but faster than rolling!

Which method do you prefer, rolling or folding?
