When you need a gift that is impressive and tasteful our Grande Charcuterie Gift Basket fits the bill. Introduce D’Artagnan signature products to friends, family and colleagues at the holidays or on special occasions with this generously-packed charcuterie gift basket. Each item is handmade in small batches exclusively for D’Artagnan using our unique recipes.
Charcuterie is a French word that refers to any smoked, dry-cured or cooked meat. Today, many restaurants are riding a charcuterie trend and offering dry-cured sausages, smoked meats and pâtés on their menus. Savvy eaters have developed a taste for the charcuterie in a big way, and D’Artagnan has been satisfying that taste for years.
Enjoy two country-style pâtés, redolent with herbs; a dry-cured pork sausage (saucisson sec), which is great for canapés or tossed with pasta for an entrée; thinly-sliced ham inspired by the famous jamon de Bayonne of France, wonderful when wrapped around slices of melon; smoked duck breast, a favorite component of a charcuterie plate, and of the classic Gascon salad. The smoked chicken breast offers a light smoked flavor and juicy texture that is a welcome addition to many dishes, but can be simply enjoyed alone. Our silky and decadent medallion of foie gras with black truffles is impressive when simply spread on brioche, but also handy in recipes, like our Buffalo Rossini. What gift basket would be complete without a tub of black truffle butter? Our creamy butter pairs well with sliced saucisson sec and a baguette (or crackers). And truffle butter is another of our patented secrets in the kitchen, where it often finds itself under the skin of a chicken or turkey.
So discover –and share—the art of charcuterie with this gourmet gift basket, which offers a wonderful variety of artisanal treats and makes a great gift for any occasion (or an easy party-in-a-basket for a host).
