Ming Tsai shares the secrets of his cranberry and lemongrass sauce, which goes perfectly with his duck recipe.
For the Seared Duck Breast with Yam Ravioli::
Season duck breasts with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. In a saute pan or heavy cast iron pan on low heat, place breasts, skin-side down, and render the breasts until crispy and brown, about 12-15 minutes. When the breasts are crispy, transfer to a plate, meat-side down (which is still raw). Remove pan from heat, keeping fat in pan for cooking ravioli.
To make the ravioli filling: slice hot yams in half and scoop yam into a bowl. Fold in butter, syrup and five spice; check for flavor and season. To assemble ravioli: lay out a wonton wrapper, place a small mound (about 1 1/2 tablespoons) of filling in center, taking care not to get it on edges of wrapper (about 1/4-inch border). Brush the edges with egg wash and top with a second wrapper, pressing firmly to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
Reheat the duck fat over medium heat and sear duck breasts, meat-side down, until medium-rare, about 3-4 minutes. Let duck rest on board, meat-side down, for 5 minutes before slicing. In the same pan, fry the ravioli on both sides in the duck fat, about 1-2 minutes.
To serve, place 2 ravioli on plate, surround with duck slices and garnish with sauce.
For the Cranberry and Lemongrass Sauce::
In a medium saucepan coated lightly with oil over medium-high heat, saute shallots, garlic and lemongrass until soft, about 2 minutes. Add cranberries and saute another 2 minutes. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Deglaze with wine, reduce by 75%. Add chicken stock and reduce by 50%. Stir in lemon juice and sugar and whisk in the butter. Check for flavor and season, if necessary.
Makes about 7 cups of sauce.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
