Peking Duck Day

peking-duck-pairing

Today is “Peking Duck Day”, and I wanted to pay homage to New York’s Peking Duck House, a staple in the wine community. This small Chinese restaurant on Mott Street (though I hear the Midtown location is nice too) has a BYOB policy 365 days a year with no corkage fee. Famed sommeliers, winemakers, and every New Yorker in the wine industry has had a wine dinner here, negating the assumption that Chinese food is difficult to pair with wine.

Below I’ve paired three of my favorite dishes at Peking Duck House with three wines that can all be found a short walk from the restaurant at Astor Wines & Spirits.
