Saturday July 11, 2020 The Herald Magazine 21 The Irish Cookbook, JP McMahon, priced £22. tonight. Not a morsel. But the duck will and the char-sui too, served with rice and spinach. Both succulent, especially that duck golden-skinned – hacked into hunks, tender and superbly moist and full of flavour. Surprising, really, given that there isn’t a mainstream European restaurant in this country that doesn’t want to serve us duck, almost raw, often rubbery and usually tasteless. The Happy Roast then? Very simple, very straightfo­rward and very good. It’s already a big hit with the Chinese community. I can see why. Mary Contini is an author and broadcaste­r and director of Valvona & Crolla. Easy Peasy: Real Cooking for Kids by Mary Contini and Pru Irvine is out now Valvona & Crolla are trading online during this period. Visit www. valvonacro­ or call 0131 556 6066 PRICE It’s £9 for the three-roast with fried rice to take away, or £12 for the container to be filled entirely with roast. A whole roast duck is £23, a whole suckling pig £168, while a whole soy chicken is £18.
