Happy Foieloween!

Or Happy Duckoween, depending on your taste. Whether you like it sweet or savory, we wish you a tasty Halloween.

Pre-order turkey for the holidays NOW!

Yes, folks, it’s that time again. Thoughts turn to glistening, roasted birds and an endless array of side dishes. Guest lists and seating arrangements. New recipes and the tried-and-true family traditions.

But it all centers on the bird. Organic, heritage breed, natural and totally wild turkeys are all options at dartagnan.com. And for those who like white meat, we offer organic and natural turkey breast.

Not a fan of turkey? Other festive fare includes capon and goose.

Because we source from small farms, we  have a limited supply of birds every year. Those in the know order early before we start selling out. So head over to our site and get started. You will feel better once you know that your turkey (or goose) can be crossed off the list.

As Tee from Richmond, VA said of her D’Artagnan organic turkey last year:

“This was the best turkey I have ever cooked or eaten. The breast was very large and the turkey was so juicy! Just oven roasted. Nothing extra special in my preparation of the turkey – it’s just THAT good.”

Happy Easter

Happy Easter 2014

Happy Passover

Why is this night different from all other nights? On this night, we eat a proper feast, with multiple courses. And lots of wine. We sing and we lean on comfortable cushions. On this night our bread is flat, but our spirits are high.

Chag Sameach Pesach. May your seder be long and your herbs bitter. And may someone else clean up the matzoh crumbs.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day…even the French. We wish you hearty meals and ample drink, and may the luck of the Irish follow you all year.

Happy National Pie Day!

January 23rd is the day to curl up with your meaty pie and celebrate this food holiday in carnivore style.

We love a pie filled with meat — from chicken pot pie to steak, ale and kidney pie. Cornish pasties or any hand-held pie rank high on our list. Shepherd’s pie with Wagyu beef is a favorite recipe, too. Lamb tucks nicely into a crust, and so does venison or wild boar. You can say all you like about apple pie, we’ll take a meat pie any day.

Bonne Année! Happy New Year!

Wishing you a happy new year filling with delicious adventures – both sweet and savory.

Here are some some vintage New Year’s greetings from the turn of the last century for you to enjoy. Our penchant for all things French will be obvious, but there are several interesting cards in English as well. We were delighted to find so many images of lucky pigs – yes, it turns out they are more than just tasty!  There were so many ways to express your best wishes during the golden age of the postcard.

The postcard was the text message of the early 20th century. To give you a sense of how prevalent it was, in 1907 over 577 million postcards were mailed, at a time when the US population was only 88 million. And the postal service delivered mail to homes several times a day!  Often a postcard arriving in the morning would confirm the arrival time of a train that very evening.
