Smoking duck, lots of cheese...and a French-style supper

Wednesday 19 October 2011

I managed to spend a small fortune on cheese recently (a Beaufort, St Marcellin, Tomme de Savoie and Tommette a l'huile to be exact) under the pretext that this would be 'dinner' rather than a snack which therefore justifies the expenditure (female post-purchase-rationalisation logic).

This is actually not that far from the truth - I love the French way of eating - good cheese, good wine, meat and fresh bread, shared with friends. Perfect.

Clockwise from right - St Marcellin, Tomme de Savoie, Tommette a l'huile and Beaufort

 The cheese was mopped up with a date and walnut bread and a smoked duck breast, orange and red chicory salad.
Smoked duck breast - from Venn Street Market

Date and walnut bread - from the Old Post Office bakery
Sometimes, it's the simpler the better with food, and what could be more simple than cheese, bread and red wine...
