Cooking up a storm...

While the winter weather continued to pummel at our doorstep on Monday night, our kitchen sizzled and steamed with help from some spicy delicacies by Kenny Ting of Concubine.

The charismatic Kenny and his hardworking team prepared six mouthwatering traditional Chinese dishes that illustrated exactly why the Gouger St eatery was awarded Best Chinese Restaurant at the South Australian Catering and Restaurant Awards.

For those of you who were unable to attend, don't despair.. Try out Kenny's fabulous recipe for Tamrind Duck. A delicious yet simple recipe that will suit any occasion and leave you wanting more!

1 cleaned duck [approx. 2 kg]
5 litre water
350ml soya sauce
350ml healthy boy sauce
250gm palm sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
100ml thick caramel sauce
30gm star anise
Tamarind sauce
1 can [375ml] tamarind pulp concentrate
200g palm sugar
1 tablespoon fish sauce

  1. Mix all ingredients and bring it to boil.
  2. Put in the duck and simmer it for about 30 minutes or until duck is tender [add more water if necessary].
  3. Chop duck into smaller pieces and pour tamarind sauce over it to serve.
