Cooking at Home with French Favorites

I dream of being able to eat some french classics again. For those hard to find imports, this website has many international favorites from french butter to Foie Gras. Prices seem really reasonable too. If you can’t take a trip to France at the moment, having a few treats can help tide you over.

Another good site to browse is http://www.frenchfeast.com/products.htm. The site gives a nice history and description of each product.

For example:

French Classics

Duck Confit / Confit de Canard

Rougié Duck Confit A specialty of Gascony, confit is a time-honored method of preserving meat by salting it and cooking it slowly in its own fat. The cooked meat is then packed into a crock or pot and covered with its cooking fat, which acts as a seal and preservative. The beauty of this duck confit from Rougié is that all the hard work is done for you. All you have to do is to heat it and enjoy! You can also use this tender confit to prepare a cassoulet, or roast it with cep mushrooms for confit à la basquaise, with fried potatoes for confit à la béarnaise, or with sorrel for confit à la périgourdine. Rougié · Duck confit, 4 legs · 1.5kg (53 oz) · $41.00 · Available end of January.
