Peking Roast Duck is a famous local dish in Beijing. Legend has it that roast duck was invented during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang who founded the Mingy Dynasty was fond of duck very much. Therefore, his chefs invented roast duck to please the emperor. Roast duck was introduced to Beijing after the Emperor Zhu Di who was the fourth son of Zhu Yuanzhang moved the capital from Nanjing to Beijing.
