  • About

Roast duck is used as an ingredient in other dishes, usually stir-fried or in different soups. Here is a recipe, using roast duck, that I created for the Wine Institute, Winegrowers of California. The Cantonese name for pistachios, hoi sum guor, translates into “open heart nut.” The words hoi sum mean “happy,” all of which means good things for this mixed dish based on roast duck.
