Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten Free and Dairy Free Peking Duck Pancakes.

Chinese is back on the menu! A lot of Chinese cooking contains gluten due to the fact that traditional soy sauce is made from wheat. I picked up some gluten free soy sauce in Sainsburys so decided to have a go at some Chinese cooking. I went for a roast Peking duck served with some gluten free pancakes.
