Place duck in a pot with stock ingredients. Simmer for 1 hour. Remove and drain duck.

Place on a rack and dry in front of a fan for 2 hours or in the fridge overnight.

Preheat oven to 220°C and roast duck for 30-40 minutes, or until deep golden and crispy. Rest, then remove meat from bone and slice.

Pancakes: Pour boiling water over flour and mix to form a dough. Knead for 5-6 minutes.

Divide dough into 16 pieces and roll into 0.5cm thick disks. Brush with sesame oil and place 8 disks on top of each other. Roll out to a third of a centimetre thickness.

Pull two pancakes apart, dry-fry for 30 seconds a side. Serve with duck, vegetables and sauce.
