BlueMts We usually buy the duck dish frozen at the vegan supermarket next to the Green Gourmet. You can also buy the soy curd sheets frozen or you can make them yourself by boiling full fat soy milk and skimming the skin - takes a lot of practice.

The skin is great for fresh spring rolls which are great for a "help yourself " meal for parties etc just set out a plate of the soaked spring roll wrappers and plates of sliced, grated and chopped veggies and chopped nuts and some spicy sauces and everyone can make their own fresh spring rolls.

I dont have al whole food store here. I will have to check my local co-op store and see if they have it. I am dying to try this duck skin recipe. Thanks.

Interesting. Seems like more trouble than it's worth - unless you need the crisp for a dish.

I suppose you could also slice it and add it to soups and stir-fry.

The recipe Aristede links to uses it folded over on itself a few times, steamed then fried to produce the 'duck' itself, nut just the 'skin'.  It looks interesting, I might buy a few sheets of the dried stuff and give it a go next time I do an on-line food shop.  I love crispy mock duck pancakes!

It depends on where you are. Usually, I buy tofu/bean curd from my local Chinatown market, but they aren't necessarily abreast on GMO (or even care necessarily). Your best bet would be a natural food store or maybe something like a Whole Foods. If you can find a variety of tofu/bean curd that's organic, it's also GMO-free.

I've never had this before, but I do like crispy textures, so I bet it's good. Glad you found it helpful, justonetruth.
