    A classic preparation, the torchon offers the essence of foie gras: purity of flavor, creamy, delicate texture and luxurious richness, all in a ready-to-serve package.

    Additional Information

    For fans of foie gras, the torchon is the ultimate preparation. With few and simple ingredients, the full glory of foie gras can be savored in every bite.

    The traditional method of poaching foie gras wrapped in a dish towel (torchon in French) still works, though today we use plastic, vacuum seal and sous vide to make the cylindrical treasure we call torchon.

    But we still follow the old recipe for success: a dash of Armagnac and a blend of salt and sugar to accent the naturally rich foie gras flavor. That is all you need.

     

    California customers -- Please note that, as of January 7, 2015, the California ban on foie gras has been overturned. The sale of foie gras within the state of California is now legal.

    Our foie gras is produced from Moulard ducks raised in a low-stress environment on 200 acres in the lush valley formed by the Hudson River of New York State. The ducks are never caged; instead they live free-range in deeply bedded barns with access to drinking water. Throughout their lives, they eat a whole-grain diet of corn, soy and fresh clean water. No hormones or antibiotics are ever used.

    When the hand-feeding process begins, the ducks live in an open pen holding fewer than a dozen birds. They have room to stretch, open their wings, and group together, following their natural instincts as flock animals.

    Our Hudson Valley farm manages all stages of production for superb quality control; they are recognized worldwide as a premier producer of foie gras and Moulard duck products.

    The unadulterated foie gras flavor of our torchon can be enjoyed simply: sliced into medallions and served on baguette, toasted brioche or crostini with fruit compote, fig syrup or balsamic reduction and a sprinkling of coarse fleur de sel. We recommend pairing with Sauternes or a late harvest wine like Jurançon.

    Serve it simply with toasted brioche and a jammy fruit accompaniment.

    Our Foie Gras

    Foie gras (fwah grah) is the fattened liver of a waterfowl (duck or goose), a natural phenomenon encouraged by a special hand-feeding process. D’Artagnan introduced domestically-farmed foie gras to the United States in 1985, and has been supplying the finest restaurants, stores and home cooks with a range of fresh and prepared foie gras products ever since.
