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)

Food

Duck and goose confit and foie gras are a traditional part of the diet of SW France. Our duck confit and foie gras  are produced in the Aveyron  by a small group of 38 farmers who breed and raise their poultry using traditional methods and feeding only locally grown maize. The goose confit and foie gras are produced in les Landes and the Tarn. All are raised in sheds (never caged) with access to an extensive external enclosure (at least 5m² per animal). The meat and livers are conserved in their own fat by slow cooking, with a little salt and pepper as the only additives.

SW France has one of the lowest rates of heart disease in Europe and it is thought that duck fat may be a contributory factor to this. This is apparently due to the fat being high in mono- and polyunsaturates. What’s more, duck is also high in iron. Confit and foie gras are certainly very tasty and possibly good for you as well. What more could you want?

Our pork products from the Basque Country are made from free range pigs reared outdoors (all year) in the woods of a Pyrenean mountainside. They are free foraging, only being fed in the winter months when grazing/foraging is scarce. These  products are all meat ! Pork as it should be !
Our Escargots are from the Jura are also free range, being gathered from the wild!
