Le French GourMAY at O delice!

My favourite month of May again because restaurants will promote French food and special French dishes that are not normally served.
They should have a month for British food and other countries as well, but French is good because there is cheese.

I went to O delice! again because I love duck and good cheese so I had the special menu that was on for Le French GourMAY.
Too bad Charlies next door has packed up because I love their crispy duck and UK style comfort Chinese food.

All the items are from Midi Pyrenees in the South of France.

When you wait for the food, you can see the crepes being made with the slanted mirror by the kitchen.

Earl grey tea by teapigs:

Started off with earl grey tea that had a strong leafy taste.
Smoked duck galette:
This was served with carmelized onions, a dash of curry powder, cherry tomatoes and rocket.

It was absolutely delicious because the crepe was evenly filled with cheese that was savoury with delicious onions on top with a hint of curry.
The crepe was light and crispy.

The duck was wonderful because it is different, it was dark in colour and the texture and taste was like a duck version of parma ham and the rocket leaves help balance the heaviness with its bitterness.

Cold cut and Cheese platter:
The cheese platter is served after 5pm.
Here are the items in the platter.

A salty and waxy saucisson which tastes a little bit like the snack called pepperami.

Bread for the pork terrine.

Cows cheese and Sheeps cheese.
The cows cheese was light and soft and the sheeps cheese was surprisingly mild.

Pork and mushroom terrine.
I really liked this one because it had an equal balance or pork, mushrooms and it was not that fat.

Bayonne ham which was waxy and not too salty.

Guerkins and fig jam which were really good condiments with the platter.
