Some people remember that July 1, 2012 was the day the California ban on foie gras went into effect. Of course, that ill-conceived law was overturned on January 7, 2015, to much rejoicing and popping of champagne corks. We traditionally mark the day with a special on foie gras.
So for you lovers of the good stuff, it’s time to enjoy with abandon. And to encourage you, all foie gras is 20% off at dartagnan.com for 12 hours only.
Our celebration of National Burger Month brings us to our final burger: the Breakfast Burger. Now, we all know that the burger is a perfect meal. It may contain all the food groups depending on how you dress it. So why not eat it for breakfast or brunch?
A buffalo burger is topped with cheddar cheese, hickory smoked bacon, and a soft-cooked egg before being sandwiched in a toasted English muffin that’s dressed with Bloody Mary mayo.
And our friends at Brooklyn Brewery have paired this burger with one of their fine beers. After all, what’s better than a burger and a beer? A light Pilsner fits the bill for this burger, whether you enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
But wait, there’s more. With Memorial Day coming and burgers on the brain, here are some bonus burgers and beer pairings for your holiday weekend.
Our classic Buffalo Bleu Cheese Burger with bacon is a crowd-pleaser. And with a bottle of Brooklyn Brewery Brown Ale (or two) it’s bound to be a hit at the backyard party.
Our upscale burger – the Ultimate Wagyu, Foie Gras and Truffle Burger – easily goes from white tablecloth to picnic table. Keep it classy with a big bottle of Brooklyn Brewery’s Local 1, which is a Belgian-style strong golden ale.
If you love mushrooms, this burger is for you. There are layers of flavor in the Ultimate Wild Mushroom Buffalo Burger, which starts with seasoning the patty generously with porcini powder. If that’s not enough umami for you, the truffle butter and wild mushrooms will bring the rest. Pop the cork on a bottle of Brooklyn Brewery’s Local 2, a Belgian-inspired dark abbey ale.

The Epoch Times has reported Ariane’s official New Year’s Eve plans. She’s going to ring in 2015 quietly, at home with a few friends. Those friends include Chef Hélène Darroze and Chef Bernard Liberatore, so the food needs to be great.
L – R: Helene Darroze, Gabrielle Hamilton, Barbara Lynch, Ariane Daguin.
You know it will be. Ariane is going to provide the best ingredients from D’Artagnan: caviar, foie gras and mangalica ham. It’s shaping up to be a lavish feast. In a last-minute change Ariane decided to serve Wagyu striploin instead of lobster, because, hey, it’s Wagyu.

We’ll have to wait and see how this crowd of kitchen luminaries decides to cook it all up. You can bet we’ll be asking Ariane for photos!
Our recipe for caviar and creme-fraiche on baby potatoes
As for drinks, don’t worry about this crowd. Ariane will serve Pousse-Rapiere, which is the aperitif of choice in Gascony. This can be replicated at home with Armagnac, sparkling wine and a slice of orange. But the “push of the rapier” is quiet strong, as this amusing blog post attests. If you don’t have the special flute with a rapier on the side for measuring, no worries. Substitute a champagne flute. And check this site for more information about this delightful cocktail.
We wish you all a Happy New Year full of tasty adventures. And let us know how you spend the evening – and what you eat! Salut!
We think every party needs a charcuterie board on the table. With that strong beginning, you can serve all manner of tasty nibbles and host a New Year’s Eve party that everyone will talk about well into next year.
If you take our suggestion and serve charcuterie – duck rillettes, pâté, saucisson sec – these quick pickled mushrooms will complement the rich flavors and textures nicely.
Our chorizo croquettes are served with smoky paprika sauce and make a fabulous finger food for a New Year’s Eve party.
Get the best puff pastry you can find for these mushroom vol-au-vents. And let the vegetarians know that you will have tasty options for them.
New Year’s Eve calls for the fancy stuff. Our caviar pairs well with baby red potatoes and crème fraiche in this simple – yet elegant – recipe.
These dainty deviled quail eggs with porcini and parmesan will be a hit. Set them in a drift of parmesan cheese and watch them vanish fast.
And after the revelry is done, and you are looking for a fortifying New Year’s Day brunch, look to our recipes for inspiration. Because bacon helps make everything better. Your resolutions actually begin January 2.
It’s time to plan your New Year’s Eve festivities. In our experience, the party is always better with foie gras, caviar, or cassoulet on the table. Save 15% off a selection of our favorites from filet mignon to black winter truffles, and everything in between. Because New Year’s Eve is the time for something a bit luxurious, something with je ne sais quoi.
And don’t forget to plan a proper brunch on New Year’s Day! Along with that hair of the dog, we find bacon quite effective (and delicious).
If you’re feeling that itch, there’s only one thing to do.
