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.
Ariane will be on Mike Rowe’s excellent new show Somebody’s Gotta Do It tonight on CNN at 9 PM EST. Watch a little preview of what happens down on the chicken farm. And tune in for the full episode tonight!
To get your own taste of the featured Green Circle Chicken, skip on over to our website.
And, yes, Mike is as nice as he appears to be on screen – he is a genuine guy with a big heart. Ariane had a wonderful day shooting this episode with him.
While the holiday bird may take center table (ours truly are stars!), the supporting cast of savory side dishes is just as important. We’re offering some of our favorite ingredients for those dishes at 15% off this week.
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.
With November we welcome Turkey Season! No need to panic, we’ve got birds of all sizes and styles: organic, heritage, and wild for your Thanksgiving table.
But pre-order soon, because we will sell out! We have limited numbers of birds because we source from family farms with small flocks.
So head to dartagnan.com and bag yourself a bird. Then turn your attention to all the other details. And we know there are many.

Chef Anita Lo of Annisa, a long-time friend of D’Artagnan, was featured on Serious Eats explaining her philosophy behind plating pork loin. Yes, it’s our Berkshire pork, but aside from that, we have a lot of respect for Chef Anita and find this a fascinating peek into the mind of a brilliant chef.
We are not going to spoil this by trying to explain it, so just head over to Serious Eats for the full post.
And for more Anita Lo – in action – check our video in which she and Ariane demonstrate how easy it is to sear foie gras.
