Cookbook Countdown #9: NSCRHR ~ Sichuan Peppers Roast duck with coriander and cucumber salad

Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
For September 2016
naturally speaking Chinese Recipes and Home Remedies
See more books by Terry Tan HERE
Roast duck (two drumsticks) with Sichuan Pepper sauce - page 154
Coriander and Cucumber Salad with Sichuan Pepper - pages 154-155
both dishes uses Sichuan peppercorns

dinner for one
 quite happy with the results of the roast duck drumsticks
(but lots of pot-scrubbing to do!)
The above cucumber and coriander salad was interesting!
finally decided to marry up these two dishes from the book
ala Peking Duck style!
Pancake recipe adapted from >here< with an added egg!
