These are decadent layers of goose foie gras made with traditional free-range farming methods, and a 100% natural feeding, approved by the Label Rouge production body of France. This is par for the course for the renowned Maison Castaing, found in the heart of Landes.
The semi-cooked foie gras has thin strips of black truffle, which adds even more luxurious flavor to the incredible spread.
Serve the Castaing Mille Feuille of Goose Foie Gras with 5% Truffle on slices of warm toast or fresh bread, and a little dollop of sweet fruit preserve on top. If you’re not feeling the fruit preserve, you can sprinkle on a little pepper, or smear a bit of mustard or balsamic spread to highlight the savory flavors.
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.
