It's hard to live in Southwest France and not eat duck!
Duck is on the menu everywhere and even though I was sceptical about eating it I have to say that I am now, happily, a convert.
Duck is on my menu often and in many forms and this recipe is a simple yet mouth-watering one that uses few ingredients resulting in a treat of a main course.
If you've never cooked duck before be aware that a lot of fat will come off of the breast so it's best to have a jar or container to put it into.
Also, if your smoke detector is quick to chirp, I would suggest moving it until you are finished with the stove part of the cooking.
