Additional Information

Here’s something unique for the game bird enthusiast:  French Jumbo Quail.

In many ways this is a super quail. Larger (twice the size!) and tastier (twice the flavor!) than the average quail. All of this, and French too!  

The quail are air-chilled, which contributes to the flavor concentration, and leaves skin that cooks up nice and crispy. Processed by hand with a special technique that involves dry-plucking and waxing to remove all the pin feathers, this leaves the skin silky smooth.

Raised on a small farm in the Southwest of France, these quail are an exclusive at D’Artagnan. Our chef clients have been serving them for some time, and getting rave reviews. Now it’s your turn to experience the tender texture and incredible flavor of our French quail.

Quail is versatile; whether baked, roasted, pan-seared, grilled or braised, it will take all types of seasoning and marinades well. Be careful when cooking – quail can dry out if overcooked. It's best to cook them quickly, and leave them medium rare.
