  1. You know, I only have ordered duck at restaurants. You’ve made me think twice about it and how easy it is to use and whip up a tasty stir fry. Thank you Agnes!

  2. This is great! Is Bok Choy cook like leek? Can you make patties? Also which sauce would you recommend with the duck if we wanted to spice things up a bit?

    • Thanks foe visiting Cesi. Bok Choy is cooked more like cabbage or spinach. I have never tried making patties with it but now you have me thinking. Duck goes very well with sweet and sour sauces.

    • Justine T&uuiro;inqsqète Vanessa, moi c’est pareil, et même quand j’arrive à les séduire, ils finissent toujours par aller voir ailleurs, et du coup je me sens seul, triste, laide. J’aimerais bien devenir belle en claquant des doigts mais je sais bien que cet article à raison, ça ne marche malheureusement pas comme ça. Fait, comme moi, il faut essayer d’oublier les amours passés et aller de l’avant ! Toujours en avant ! 0  0
