I just wanted to let you know that my order arrived safely yesterday, and we decided to try the confit de canard, it was delicious and we both thought it was one of the best confit we have eaten, and we eaten quite a lot as we spend at least a month or more in France each year and we have visited most regions including “Les Landes”. Also Your print out of advice on storage etc is very helpful and would be very helpful to younger people who aren’t always so knowledgeable about food storage other than using a fridge as Larders don’t really exist very much any longer. We are very much looking forward to trying your other things, my husband especially wants to try the snails. He told me to re-order some more confit, which I am definitely going to do, but just want to try the rillettes and snails, but will definitely be re-ordering before the end of the month, he is also very keen to try your Soupe de Homard. So thrilled to have found your web site, by chance through Google, but will be telling my friends and family. Thank you once again Yours sincerely Alexandra Galliers-Pratt. Nov 2018)
