  • Baisha Preserved Duck

    Also known as “Banya” in the north, preserved duck from Baisha, Humen is very famous in the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The soldiers in the Baisha salt port were mostly from the Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces and were good at raising ducks. They stayed in Baisha after leaving the army. Later, a Jiangxi soldier who was good at preserving ducks combined the two techniques and created the unique Baisha Preserved Duck. It is known for having rich flavor and being thick and fat without being greasy. During the late Qing Dynasty, the dish goes to Hong Kong and has gained international fame.
