My contribution to the meal was to make shrimp and garlic chive dumplings with two sauces. That sounds easy, takes longer than the duck. So I am a saint to make them. They are well worth the effort. Yummy, yummy, yummy.
Below are pictures of the duck being served. I was told I should take pictures all night of prep, finished product of the dumpling, etc. Well, I was enjoying the evening and just didn't. So all we have are pictures of the ducks on the plates.
