Tasting Notes of the Curator

The Tauzin family raises poulardes, poulettes, and guinea fowl, all of which are corn-fed on maize grown on their own farm. Their birds are a unique breed called “Counu” or “naked neck,” originating from Africa and traditional in the Landes area. These hardy birds are slow-growing, producing succulent yet firm meat that is full of flavor.

For their final five weeks, the birds are finished on a diet of whole maize and milk, similar to a capon. This develops a layer of fat between the skin and flesh, as well as delicious marbling. The slow sugars in this diet turn to fat and give the skin a beautiful color. The result is a perfect roasting bird, featured in the “Ultimate Roast Chicken Menu” by three-star Michelin chef Hélène Darroze at The Connaught.

Pairings and Suggestions

The Exceptional Chicken from the Tauzin Family is best enjoyed roasted, allowing its rich flavors and succulent meat to shine. Pair it with simple yet complementary flavors such as roasted vegetables, herbs, and garlic. For a truly indulgent experience, enjoy it alongside a glass of full-bodied red wine, like a Bordeaux or Burgundy, to enhance its sumptuous taste.

A Family Tradition: From 19th Century to Present Day

The Tauzin family’s passion for poultry farming dates back to the 19th century in St. Sever, France. In the late 1800s, the women of the family would sell their chickens, eggs, geese, and other poultry at the weekly St. Sever market. The family’s dedication to traditional farming methods and respect for the animals’ natural rhythms has been passed down through generations. Today, the Tauzin family continues to raise exceptional poultry and honor their rich heritage.

Storage Instructions

Store the chicken in the refrigerator at a temperature between 0°C and 4°C. Consume within the specified expiration date, and always cook poultry thoroughly before consumption.
