Cook the duck pieces in a frying pan for 10-12 minutes until
well browned, turning once to cook evenly. Pour off the fat.
Brown onions in a large casserole in a little duck fat or olive
oil. Sprinkle with flour and continue to cook for several minutes
uncovered. Add the wine, duck pieces, stock and bouquet garni.
Simmer covered for 40 minutes. Add the olives and cook for a
further 20 minutes. Remove the duck pieces, onions and olives to a
separate dish and strain off cooking liquid. Skim off any fat then
reduce the liquid to about one third. Return the duck and
vegetables to the casserole, heat through and season to taste.
Serve over a bed of rice.
