Roast Duck and Kimchi Pizza + A Kuvée Wine System, Le Creuset Giveaway


Happy National Wine Day! I'm currently in Taiwan eating my weight in street food and delicious-ness. I can't believe how cheap food is here. Like a piece of spicy chicken fried steak the size of my face is two bucks!! I'm leaving tomorrow and I'll probably have to be fork-lifted onto the plane :P
But let's talk wine! Especially the new Kuvée wine system I was given to try. It's this super cool, high-tech tube that's shaped like a wine bottle and you can buy their specially packaged wine to slide into the tube. AND THEN IT LIGHTS UP AND CONNECTS TO WIFI. You have to check our their video, because I'm so bad at explaining things.
My mum was pretty ecstatic when she saw it because she loves trying wines and inviting family over for dinner. Their bottle system keeps the wine longer than usual so you can open multiple bottles at a time. You can read about the wine on the touch screen, rate and order another bottle all from the fancy electronic tube. How neat is that? It's such a conversation starter.
I mentioned it to my friend who was really interested in trying it, because she likes to have a glass of wine for dinner, but not necessarily finish the whole bottle. It was interesting reading the pairing notes and for this particular pinot noir, it said it paired well with roast meats. Hence, this roast duck pizza and fried kimchi. It works so well together! As a cook, I found this feature pretty cool and it gave me new ideas for meals and pairings.
I'm giving a chance for you guys to win the Kuvée Wine System along with a Le Creuset Wine Cooler bag and 50% of 4 bottles of wine! Say what! Just head on over to my Instagram or the Instapost for instructions!

Roast Duck and Kimchi Pizza

makes 2 medium pan pizzas

Pizza Dough (adapted from serious eats)
3.5 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp salt
1 tsp instant yeast
1/4 cup olive oil
1.5 cups water, room temp

Toppings
napa kimchi (fist sized amount)
sesame oil
basil based pesto
roast duck
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, plus more
handful of grated parmesan cheese
dash of ground black pepper
fresh basil

  1. For dough: 
    • combine flour, salt, yeast and 2 tbsps olive oil in a stand mixer with dough hook attached. Add water to mixer gradually on medium speed until the dough comes together. Increase speed to medium-high for about 5-10 mins until dough is stretchy and smooth
    • Gather dough into a ball and allow to rise in a oiled bowl for about an hour. Cover bowl with plastic wrap to avoid dough drying out
    • After first rise, separate dough into 2-4 balls, cover with wrap again and allow to rise for another hour
    • Gently push and stretch dough to desired size in greased baking sheet
  2. Meanwhile, cut kimchi into bite sized pieces and sauté on medium heat until wilted, but not so much that it loses it's crunch. Drizzle in about 2 tsp of sesame oil
  3. I used roast duck slices that I bought in the grocery store and lightly fried/roasted them until the fat was rendered on the skin
  4. Once everything is prepared, adjust oven rack to middle and preheat oven to 450F
  5. Spread pizza with a generous amount of basil pesto leaving an inch of border. Oil border with olive oil
  6. Top with mozzarella cheese and then place sautéed kimchi and roast duck on top
  7. Bake for about 15-20mins or until cheese has melted and crust looks golden. Once out, top with parmesan cheese and lots of black pepper and basil leaves
