We’ve combed the globe for exciting,
irresistible flavors, and just had to add a few of them to our product
list. Some are seasonal;
others grace the table all year long.
AUX DELICES DE LA
MER (DELICACIES FROM THE SEA)
- Grey Sea Salt - The real thing from the Geurande.
It's greyish, large-grained, and crunchy. It tastes like the sea.
It's totally organic. It will cake up on humid days. This stuff
sells for about eighty cents a kilo in the local supermarche. Every
French home has a salt-cellar-full -- for tossing into soups, stews,
and boiling water, fine-tuning sauces, dipping buttered radishes,
and folding into bread dough.
Fleur de sel - The finer, whiter top layer of sea
salt, lovingly ladled off and scooped into prized packages. Chefs
swear by it as a condiment.
Atlantic Smoked Salmon - Make this succulent
smoked salmon a priority when company's coming. Our smokehouse is a family
operation, and top-ranking restaurant to boot. You'll love the
mildness of the smoke, the firmness of the salmon, the compliments
of your guests.
- FROM THE FARM
- Fiddlehead Ferns - Asparagus-y ferns are an early
harbinger of Spring. They shoot up and curl tightly into pinwheels.
We rub them to remove wispy foliage, wash, and parboil. Good hot
with butter and lemon, or cool with vinaigrette.
White Asparagus - Thick, luscious and pure, these
Spring delights have many European fans. Lovingly enterred in
freshly-turned Loire soil. Makes a pudgy finger food with homemade
chive mayo or elegant vegetable with Spring lamb.
- Ramps - This long, slender shoo-in for
scallions is a sassy, garlicky vegetable. Its green leaf should be
savored with the white stalk. Marinate and grill, or add whole to
- Cavaillon Melon - "Toujours" Provence.
Sun-kissed melon that oozes sweet, natural flavor. Savor its vibrant
orange flesh with smoky ham and a splash of Porto.
- Mache - Soft, buttery, clean on the palate.
Our mache digs its roots deep into the best French dirt. Flavor
shoots out to the ends of the leaves, giving it a flavor the
hydroponic stuff could never achieve. Spoon coddled eggs onto a nest
- Hearts of Palm - The fresh version of
little tree trunks, grown in bushes to avoid tree-a-cide. One-pound bags. Just
parboil and slice into tomato-cilantro salad, chicken
- Crosnes (Available
Oct-Jan.) - Tubers with a twist. About an inch
long, twisted like a corkscrew, with flavor reminiscent of a
Jerusalem artichoke. These darlings of the gourmet set are
coquettish on a plate, creamy in a stew, and cooked in a
FRENCH WINE JELLIES
- Red Bordeaux
- Served in little cubes along with pates, swirl into pan juices of red meat, game, and
hearty poultry dishes.
- White Bordeaux
- Turn a baked,
broiled, or grilled fish into a celebration with a spoonful of wine
jelly. Turn a chicken around by lacquering the skin with it.
- Why do all those
chefs turn out better foie gras than mine? Here's their secret,
and they're not buying little jars of it either! After a morning
pick-me-up on toast, you'll be ordering it by the bucketful too.
Truffle Basket - One ounce of fresh black
truffle nestled in a hand-woven basket. Recipe booklet included.
Truffle Basket Plus - Think gilding the lily,
