"If they can do it, duckie, so can I..."

(3 out of 5 stars)
"Mouth-watering shots about Beijing's most popular dish, but alas, no recipes for us aficionados trying to recreate it in the bareness of our western kitchens. No list of ingredients, no cooking techniques, no culinary tips, nothing. Just an hour long travelogue with several interviews with Chinese chefs about how hard it is to run a business nowadays.
Oh, and several scenes where you see the hapless birds being maltreated before having their throats slit, the producer could very well have left in the editing floor. Maybe I was expecting something else, but they could have thrown in some useful information instead."
