I was very impressed by the service I received from Confit Direct when I place an order for a selection of foie gras products in November, delivery was very quick and the items were packed securely. As these delicacies were ordered specially for Christmas we have not yet opened them so cannot write a review of the products, although I am sure they will be of the highest standard. I will be more than happy to deal its Confit Direct again in the future. (Joyce from Cornwall. Dec 2016)

Wine to accompany Foie Gras

The traditional accompaniment to foie gras in the U.K. is Sauternes. We feel that Jurançon and Gaillac Doux (having a little more acidity) are better (and cheaper!!) alternatives. Similarly Vin de Paille from the Jura and the more sherry-like Vin Jaune go with Foie Gras brilliantly. What's more the first 3 are also great dessert wines.
