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.

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).
As soon as the temperatures drop we start dreaming of hearty meals. The heartiest of them all is the iconic cassoulet…which is why we are offering 15% off the recipe kit and all the components at dartagnan.com this week (sale ends Friday, 10/10 at midnight EST).

Or simply save 15% and use duck confit, Tarbais beans or ventrèche for other recipes. Did we mention demi-glace and duck fat are in that sale too?
If you have any concerns about cassoulet being complicated, watch our video with Ariane and Chef Pierre Landet to ease your fears. And look over the recipe. Cassoulet is easy to make!
We are always sad to see summer go, but there is a certain pleasure in the arrival of autumn. It means going back to the kitchen and the comfort food techniques we love: roasting, simmering and braising. It’s time to get cozy and get cooking.

Ariane has been preaching the gospel of foie gras since the earliest days of D’Artagnan. She started the company to sell the first fresh foie gras raised in the United States. Today she is the leading expert on the subject.
Erin Mosbaugh at the blog First We Feast interviewed her on the controversial topic, visited Hudson Valley Foie Gras, our partner farm, and came away with a better understanding of foie gras.
We share their post and hope that you will share it in turn. Foie gras is a topic that excites a lot of passion on both sides. We only ask that people consider all the facts before drawing conclusions about foie gras. Lucky for those who want to do that, First We Feast does a fine job of explaining and debunking the common myths.
For those who want to learn more about foie gras, try the Artisan Farmers Alliance. And if you want to order some foie gras, we have plenty available on our website, along with recipes to inspire. (Yes, we can ship foie gras to citizens of California. The prohibition on foie gras applies only to sales and production in the state.)
Though it’s cold, we are determined to welcome spring. Celebrate the season along with us, and save 15% on a selection of our favorites.
Shop this week and save.
