Castaing Discovery Set of 5 x 67g
An Introduction to French Fine Charcuterie
Sure to please any lover of French fine dining, this Discovery Set is a beautiful exploration of terrines and charcuterie by the ambassadors of great French Gastronomy, Maison Castaing.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Made with no preservatives and products certified as Label Rouge, Maison Castaing has been a recognized producer of the finest quality foie gras, foie gras products and French fine food since 1920.
With this discovery set, experience Castaing’s curated collection of five of its finest duck and goose products.
- Gourmandise Gasconne: Maison Castaing’s specialty and bestseller, this pâté combines the richness of pork, the elegance of fatty duck and the decadence of duck foie gras (this pate is made of 25% duck foie gras) to create a truly grand spread perfect for your charcuterie.
- Duck Rillettes: Made exclusively of duck meat in confit that is shredded and slow-cooked, this classic rillette is rich and unctuous, extremely flavourful and textured.
- Armagnac Duck Terrine: A duck terrine made more sumptuous with the infusion of smoky, caramel flavours of Armagnac, a small batch brandy and Southwest France’s best kept secret.
- Wild Boar Terrine with Sage and Berries: An intensely flavorful and earthy wild boar terrine that is beautifully complemented with the fine flavors of sage and 5 berries.
Country Pâté with Espelette Pepper: An authentic rustic pâté made exclusively of pork meat nuanced with the spicy and subtly fruity flavors of Espelette peppers of the French Basque Country.
