I first had this sitting in my friend Suzanne’s garden beneath an olive tree in La Livinière, an excellent wine-village in the Hérault. Cooked by Suzanne’s god-daughter Anne-Liese, a stunning cook, the simple green beans, tasting of summer and of the delicate rose-coloured garlic of Lautrec, added freshness to the grilled duck breasts which accompanied them.
