Secret Ingredient: Porcini Powder

Our Secret Ingredients series shines a light on products that make all the difference when cooking with D’Artagnan.

Sprinkle a little of this mushroom powder on just about anything for instant umami. We think of it as magic powder, because it has all the earthy power of porcini mushrooms. It can be used in spice rubs, dredges, sautés, creamy dips, sauces and anywhere you want a little oomph. And it’s available year-round, which fresh porcinis certainly are not.

Any mixture of spices can use a bit of porcini powder, whether destined to be rubbed on a turkey, beef, lamb or game bird. Soups, creamy or brothy, as well as stews, can benefit from a soupçon of this precious porcini powder.

Wishing for a White Truffle

Every season we fall in love with white truffles all over again.

Tuber magnatum pico is the most precious of all the truffles, and it has an all-too-brief season. That time is now, but it’s coming to an end. Celebrate the season and get your truffle soon. Let the delicate shavings transform your meals into blissful experiences.

Or give the ultimate gift to the foodiest foodie in your life.

Secret Ingredient: Duck Fat

Our Secret Ingredients series shines a light on products that make all the difference when cooking with D’Artagnan.

We cannot imagine life without duck fat. Discover the joys of its silkiness and delicate flavor; pronounced enough to recognize, subtle enough to let the star ingredients shine.  We sauté with it, rub it on poultry headed into the oven, deep fry in it, beat it into dough, and generally spread the love.

Oh, duck fat, how we adore you. You will forever be in the fridge.

Favorite Side Dishes for Thanksgiving

This week we are offering 15% off holiday essentials – we think of them as the “little helpers” to ease you through this year’s holiday meal and make it extra-special. Things like black truffle butter, duck fat, demi-glace and bacon. Imported French chestnuts and porcini powder bring earthy flavor and umami to recipes like classic stuffing. Speaking of which, maybe your stuffing needs a little foie gras this year. These cubes of flash-frozen foie gras are quite handy at the holidays.

For further inspiration, here are a few of our favorite things to make for the Thanksgiving meal. Just click on the photo for the recipe.

Add flavor and texture to your basic stuffing with our mushrooms or chestnuts. And don’t make a holiday feast without black truffle butter – whether under the turkey skin or in mashed potatoes, it lends a rich, earthy flavor that is completely unique.

Enrich your gravy with our duck and veal demi-glace for silky body and great depth of flavor. Green beans are a holiday standard but have you tried them sautéed in duck fat? Sublime.

Take the stress out of Thanksgiving with 15% off these holiday helpers  – but only until Sunday, November 16th at midnight EST.

And if you haven’t pre-ordered your bird, there’s still time. Click through to peruse your options – we’ve got heritage breed, organic or wild turkeys. And for those who plan a small holiday gathering, we offer bone-in turkey breast and free-range capon.
