Ariane on Vin Village Radio

 

Ariane was interviewed VVRadioLogo-300pxby Rob Barnett on Vin Village recently. The show focuses on the “who’s who” in wine & food. You can find it on the wsRadio Network.

 

Listen in for an introduction to D’Artagnan with the lady herself. The first segment can be heard here. The second segment, in which Ariane talks quite a bit about cassoulet, is here.

Have a Happy New Year with 15% OFF!

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).

Ariane Debunks the Foie Gras Myths

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.)
