August is National Sandwich Month!
We think a sandwich is perfect anytime, but in the summer a sandwich makes a neat solution for a quick dinner or a picnic lunch. On a hot evening who wants to cook? Opt instead for a cold sandwich with choice charcuterie and a bottle of rosé.
We have already laid out a little history and a plan for sandwich domination here.
You may want to just feast your eyes on a few of our favorite sandwich ideas…like this peppery saucisson sec tartine with refreshing slices of cucumber.
And though we advocate the cold sandwich as a summer meal, it’s hard to resist the lure of this pulled duck sandwich.
Or the lobster roll with bacon, which is undoubtedly the perfect summer sandwich.
A spicy pressed chorizo sandwich with cheese and red peppers satisfies the heat seekers.
Our smoked duck breast works well in a banh mi sandwich, that perfect melding of French and Vietnamese cuisines.
However you enjoy sandwiches this month, reflect on how this simple and portable meal has infinite varieties, from haute to humble.
“America is a confirmed sandwich nation. Everywhere you go you find sandwich stands, sandwich shops, and nine out of ten people seem to stick to the sandwich-and-glass-of-milk or cup-of-coffee luncheon.” – James Beard

Drumroll please ….Here’s the video of our first-ever public Duckathlon!
This year our farmers came together with our chef clients and they served up games and challenges, and most importantly plenty of food and drink. Winners were declared, prizes distributed and everyone went home with a full belly and a (slightly) light head.
For even more photos of all the action, check our Facebook page.
We want to thank all our sponsors, chefs and farmers … and especially YOU, the public who came and played with us at this unique event. See you next year for Duckathlon 2015!

Meet the latest addition to our collection of all things Three Musketeers. This beauty now lives in the lobby of our office. And when it’s switched on, you can play for free! No centimes necessary!
That is a circa 1964 Rally Three Musketeers pinball machine. Pinball, or un flipper, was once all the rage in the cafés of France. The sad truth is that the age of pinball is coming to an end, according to this article.
Rally was a French company that manufactured interesting pinball machines in the 1960s. They made history in 1966 with the first digital scoring pinball machine. This one, their interpretation of the Three Musketeers, involved three voluptuous babes with swords.
It’s all in English, because in hipster 1960s France, that was the language of cool, of rock n’ roll caché. Here are some close-up details of the playfield with its garish colors, medieval lettering and even Cardinal Richelieu.
But the instructions are in French. Here are the cards with rules and prices – and not to worry, we’ve never wagered yet! Click on the photo to enlarge.
Ariane talked to Laura Shunk at The Village Voice recently. Here’s the story of the early days at D’Artagnan and the philosophy behind what we do. Get the low-down on organic chicken, heritage-breed pork and the state of meat in general.
So go ahead, take a peek inside Ariane’s head in this interview.
It’s a simple enough idea. Take something good (Berkshire pork bacon) and make it even better (add sugar and spice). If you can resist gobbling it up right out of the oven, you’ll have a smoky, sweet treat to play with.
Here is what you will need:
Coat your bacon in the sugar and spice mixture, lay the strips on the rack and bake in the oven at 350 degrees until the bacon becomes golden and crispy. Now it’s candy.
Let it cool and then try adding it to things. For instance…candy breakfast.
Try to stop eating these. We dare you. This completely addictive snack will vanish at your next party. So make a big batch.
And if there is room for dessert, we recommend a candied bacon sundae.
How about you? What do you like to do with candied bacon?
