Jean Brunet Duck Pâté with Figs
Sweet, savory, sublime
Hailing from the High Pyrenees, the Jean Brunet Duck Pâté with Figs is a sweet and savory treat, perfect for any time of the day.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Pâtés are a classic French offering, and this one by renowned company, Jean Brunet, is a true delight to the palate. The pâté itself is silky, smooth, with a beautifully dusky taste, characteristic of a good pâté. Its flavor is deliciously savory. The addition of figs takes the flavor to a different level. The honeyed flavor of fig adds a good sweet complexity to the spread, making the combination sinfully addicting.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
This smooth pâté is easy to spread. Enjoy it as appetizers or a snack with fresh bread slices or crackers. To get that classic French picnic feel, serve it with cheese, some meats like saucisson, and a glass of good red wine. You can also use the Jean Brunet Duck Pâté with Figs in sandwiches. Try it with tomatoes and cucumbers, or with slices of turkey or steak.
A FAMILY COMPANY’S EVOLUTION
The Brunet family took its first steps in the gourmet industry as a charcuterie company in the late 1800s. It was only in the 1960s, when Jean Brunet started experimenting with pâtés and terrines, that the company really gained first national and then international attention. Now a hundred years old, the company still stands by its motto: “tradition and innovation”.
Store unopened containers of pâté in a cool, dry panty. Once opened, pâté will keep three to four days in the refrigerator. It can also be frozen for up to two months, though we recommend you consume it as soon as possible!
