    I am in lust with the products I have tried, originally sent in a huge gift basket from my brother but have since been purchased..

    Here is a listing of what was in the basket:

    Applewood Smoked, Heritage Breed Pork, Boneless Ham (1.5 lbs)

    Smoked Chicken and Apple Sausages (9oz)

    Sliced French-Style Jambon de Bayon Ham (4oz)

    Smoked Paprika Flecked Chorizo Sausages (1 lb)

    Traditional French-Style Dry Sausage, Saucisson Sec (6oz)

    Uncured Applewood Smoked Heritage Breed Pork Bacon (12oz)

    Cajun Style Cured Tasso Ham (1 lb)

    Smoked Andouille Sausages (12oz)

    French Red Wine & Garlic Sausage (1 lb)

    Smoked and Fully Cooked Duck Breast (7oz)

    Traditional Slow-Cooked Duck Leg Confit (5oz)

    Wild Mushrooms, USDA Certified Organic and Dried (1oz)

    Cracked Peppercorn Mousse (8oz)

    Pate de Campagne, Country-Style Pate (9oz)

    Creamy Mousse Truffee (8oz)

    Black Truffle Butter (8oz)

    White Truffle Butter (8oz)

    The Chorizo, duck leg confit and truffle butters are my favorites so far but all are outstanding.

    Eventually want to try the Wagyu beef but that will be a special occassion purchase because it is so expensive.

    Which products have you tried and enjoy?

    Duck confit. I can eat their duck confit straight out of the package. It's like meat candy. I also love their demi-glace.

    I have been meaning to try their truffle butter, but been too cheap to splurge.

    I've only found fresh duck breasts by that brand.  Where do you find the rest, online ordering?

    My local grocer just started carrying some of their products.  If I ever get over the sticker shock I'll try some.     /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gif

    Since you're in nyc you might want to try Balducci's. It's an upscale gourmet shop. I miss that place so much.

    I do! I wish I could find the fresh :)  I order from their website or surprisingly Costco.com has some products too, though not nearly the selection. That is where the original gift basket came from and it was at a steep discount vs buying the products individually.

    Ah! Demi-glace! It shall be on my mental list of things to taste before I expire.  Confit = meat candy is right!

    I once attended the Martha Stewart show where they gave out free D'artagan demi-glace to audeince members. The food demo for the day was steak au poivre.
