December 1-30, 2017; times vary
Departure Portland, 525 SW Morrison Street, Portland

It is also served with mandarin pancakes, encouraging guests to make mini sandwiches out of the feast.
  • The bits of meat and roasted skin left on the bones are removed and a savory duck fried rice is made with plenty of scallions and rendered duck fat.
  • To ensure 100% usage of the bird, guests start the meal with a cup of clear duck broth made from the ducks’ roasted bones.
  • For a final sweet note, a rich taste of creamy duck fat-coconut milk ice cream with marionberry sauce and buckwheat crumble closes the feast.
