The Castaing Block of Duck Foie Gras with Truffles is made with traditional and free-range farming methods, with an all-natural feeding that is certified by the French Label Rouge production body. This duck foie gras contains no preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial colors, nor additives.
It does contain the best truffles, though. The foie gras is smooth and creamy, with a rich, buttery flavor. The truffles, with their earthy, oaky flavors, add even more decadence to the already delicious delicacy.
Slice your Castaing Block of Duck Foie Gras with Truffles thinly with a warm knife. Place these slices onto some fresh bread, and add some pepper or French mustard to highlight the savory flavor. You can also add a dollop of fruit preserve or jam on top to balance it out with some sweetness. Top it with a thin slice of pear or apple, too, if you wish. This foie gras pairs well with a Pinot Grigio, or a Pinot Gris.
The Castaing family have been at the forefront of fine French gastronomy for generations, from as far back as 1900. But it wasn’t until 1925, when Joseph Castaing founded Maison Castaing that the family cemented its role as ambassadors of fine food. Located in Landes in the South of France, the company makes and distributes the finest foie gras, terrines, confit, and other gastronomic delights to various prestigious hotels, restaurants, retailers, and delicatessens worldwide.
Unopened cases of foie gras can be kept in the pantry for up to 4 years at a temperature of 10 to 15°C. Once you open the case, transfer the foie gras into an airtight glass container and it will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. Bring it to room temperature before serving.
