How do you people think about Yu Jie’s [Shaoxing Duck]? I feel my brain has had a big pleasure. Let’s see how Yu Jie write about the duck. He does not begin the description with several people sitting at the restaurant in Shaoxing, gobbling, like many people’s writing. He first writes about the road in Shaoxing, then the water of Shaoxing he sees on the road, then from the water associating to the duck in the water. This gives Shaoxing duck to have Shaoxing flavor, a feature. If he had adopted the way of many other people that begins with sitting down in the restaurant, that would have been a common meal without any feature.
Then Yu Jie moves to the dish made of duck, which is marinated duck. His description on it combines the taste and the cuisine. The taste is usually sour, sweet, salty, spicy, etc. And in the text, [Having nibbling down all the meat, I cannot help nibbling on the bones.] is also the taste. Then what is the cuisine? Usually the customer does not know how a dish is made, but can reckon it by experience. And [Owing to the long time of being marinated, the duck meat tastes like old preserved ham or beef jerky.] in the text is the description on the cuisine. Up to now, the description on marinated duck is already perfect for we hold that when a thing is good enough, then it is perfect. If a thing is regarded as imperfect for two wrong-spelt words, it will be too picky. And Yu Jie does not stop here and inputs another indirect descriptive paragraph. It is that Ning Xuan almost hasn’t touched the duck and just eats on the aniseed flavored beans, and the author almost eats up the entire plate of duck by himself. This is using the quantity to show people the goodness of the duck.
From the title to the end of the marinated duck, it is already 500 words in English, which is enough for a single article. But Yu Jie does not stop here, and gives more description on another 2 kinds of duck dishes: the Brown Duck and Duck Stewed by Herb. Now the description on Shaoxing duck is no longer a single duck, but several kinds, giving people a round impression on duck.
Let’s see the description on the second duck Brown Duck. Brown Duck itself is just to use a string to tie the duck and boil it in water. Many people would write it that way and then the Brown Duck tastes so soft and that is about all, leaving the read no suspense, and the reader just receives a bunch of unrelated information, without the feeling of expecting what will happen next. Let’s see how Yu Jie do this? Whether the Brown Duck needs to be cut runs through the entire part of Brown Duck. From [I ask the old sale lady, “Does it need to cut the duck into pieces?” She laughs and says, “No, it does not need to. See, the duck is stewed for hours and will melt in your mouth once you bite on it.”] on, most readers would wonder whether the duck needs to be cut, whether the store does not want to offer extra service, whether Yu Jie would feel being fooled and finally have to cut it by himself after buying it, or his teeth have to have a hard time on the duck? Then in the latter part of the text, [Truly, the duck has been stewed fully and melts in my mouth without my teeth even biting on it.] Up to here, the suspense is solved that the Brown Duck does not need to be cut.
