Well that’s the opinion of my youngest son and I’m won’t argue. Straight from the freezer he stir fried the impressively duck-like shreds whilst I warmed some chinese pancakes in the steamer (actually a metal colander on top of a saucepan), batoned a cucumber (no spring onions in the fridge alas) and took the lid off a bottle of hoisin sauce.
Five minutes later our fake-duck pancakes were ready and I swear to god that apart from those gristly bits of real duck that stick between your teeth, even to us die-hard Peking groupies these offerings were indistinguishable from the real thing and we demolished the lot. Unfortunately, I had only bought one packet in case of disappointment and ended up disappointed that we had run out.
Nibblet score 5/5
Waitrose sell the pancakes and they freeze really well – or you can buy them on Amazon and get them delivered
