Duck à l’Orange

Canard = Duck 鸭

I try to replace orange by mandarin 柑, since now is Chinese New Year season in Jan 2017 with plenty of mandarins.

This French classic dish costs S$20 to $25 in local French restaurants. A raw duck drumstick 鸭腿 at Seng Song Supermarket is only less than $5.
The English cook in the video used the herbs French “mirepoix” (carrot + celery + onion), equivalent to the ubiquitous “ginger 姜+ leek 葱+ onion 蒜” in common Chinese cuisine.
