OUR French GOURMET GIFT box from Lorraine, A Premium FRENCH FOOD and wine box
Experience the succulent delights of France's Lorraine gastronomy, as you eat your way through this fabulous Nancy's region gourmet box.
Mystic Gris "grey wine", AOC Côtes de Toul 2020 (75cl)
Winemakers: Thomas Colson et Rémy Welter, DOMAINE DE L'AMBROISIE.
Côtes de Toul really is heaven for fans of rosé, especially the “grey” variety: we were pleasantly surprised by this wine, which has the salmon tinge of a rosé shot through with hints of grey—hence the name gris—owing to the use of dark-skinned grape varieties (Pinot Noir and Gamay, in this case) in Toul’s famous vin gris. The must or grape juice has very little contact with the skins, which explains the light colour of grey wine.
In 2006, Thomas and Rémy took over the winery where they had previously been employed in the vineyards—the only one inside the city of Toul that makes Côtes de Toul wine—and now offer us this delightful Gris de Toul, distinguished with several stars in the Guide Hachette des Vins.
Best served chilled.
Traditional Lorraine pâté with essence of Bergamot orange (180 g)
Artisans: Florence et Michel Haffner, GAEC du Fumé Lorrain, Ferme Haffner.
The Bergamot orange is a citrus fruit imported from Italy, a cross between bitter orange and lime. It was brought to this region by René II, Duke of Lorraine and King of Sicily in the Middle Ages. The natural essence extracted from the peel is far more aromatic than the juice, and nowadays it’s all the rage in Lorraine, used in everything from perfumes to teas and gourmet foods like this artisanal pâté.
Our artisans do things the all-natural way, with the utmost respect for the environment. That’s why their pigs are fed with grain grown on their own farm, to which they add flax, and why they’ve been GMO-free Bleu Blanc Coeur certified since 2009 and additive-free (E250) since 2017. And the flavour and consistency are simply unbeatable!
Farmhouse pork pâté delicately flavoured with Côtes de Toul grey wine (150 g)
Artisan: Xavier Fagnot, GAEC des Fleurs, Ferme Fagnot.
We chose this artisanal breeder/processor for their commendable methods and, obviously, the taste of their creations. The animals they use to prepare their recipes are raised on the farm and fed grain and fodder from their own land to ensure their wellbeing.
We think you’ll love this pâté with the light pink colour of Toul’s grey rosé wine.
Veal sauté stewed in Mirabelle plums from Lorraine (400 g)
Artisan: Le Gout des Près, Éleveurs Deborah et Kristofer Barré.
Serious foodies know that the taste of meat depends on what the animal eats. If it’s raised in a natural, stress-free environment, its meat will be savoury, tender and rich in nutrients.
Our artisans prize this Goût des Prés or “meadow flavour”, which you can taste in every bite of their delicious farm-raised veal, slowly stewed with Lorraine’s inimitable Mirabelle plums.
The famous Babas du Roi with Mirabelle plums from Lorraine (6 small babas)
Artisan: Maison des Sœurs Macarons, Chef Pâtissier Nicolas Genot.
Lorraine’s Mirabelle plums are excellent as fruit, but they’re also quite delectable as eau-de-vie with babas made by a skilled artisan. According to legend, the Polish King Stanislaw, who ruled Lorraine from 1737 to 1766, was responsible for the invention of this delicious dessert. While exiled in Alsace, he became fond of Gugelhupf, but as he grew older, he found the cake increasingly heavy and dry.
He ordered his pastry chef to give this tasty Alsatian sweet a new twist, and so the famous rum baba was born. Let us know you think!
Crunchy mini meringues with a bittersweet fruity flavour and a hint of Bergamot orange (50 g)
Artisan: Les Délices de Mam'zelle G, Gaëlle Delhotal.
Mam’zelle Gaëlle doesn't skimp on quality ingredients: all her homemade recipes call for premium fresh products, acquired locally whenever possible, to ensure optimum flavour. These little meringues are infused with the unmistakeable taste of fragrant Bergamot oranges, a perfect contrast to their sweet, powdery texture.
A treat for all ages that delicately melts in your mouth.
Velvety, airy marshmallows lightly flavoured with Lorraine’s Mirabelle plums (100g)
Artisan: Sweetilie, artisan nougatier & Confiseur, Stéphanie et Stanislas Dieudonne.
These homemade, gluten-free marshmallows with the fruity hint of Lorraine’s amazing Mirabelle plums will bring out the sweet-loving child in you.
Gourmands are in for a treat with these soft, airy morsels.
Genuine Lorraine Bergamot oranges, a 100% local sweet (100 g)
Artisans: Confiserie artisanale Aux Portes d'Or, Carmen et Frédéric Paul-Cavalier.
The small, square, sun-kissed candies known as Bergamotes de Lorraine have been delighting gourmet taste buds for over a century and a half. The process of creating these sugary morsels flavoured with Bergamot oranges is both simple and complex: it requires premium essence of Bergamot orange, a very precise temperature and, above all, a dry, healthy environment.
And our absolutely adorable artisans have mastered every step to achieve perfection. It’s amazing how a simple lump of sugar can give so much pleasure!
Happy Gourmet Voyage to Lorraine !

Every month, we have our new gourmet boxes tested by independent testers (we don't pay them! We just ship them one of our new gourmet basket…), specialized in the world of gourmet boxes to get external advice (we would obviously put 10/10 each time...) and make our latest gourmet baskets known, because we are proud of them, and because we must play the game of criticism....
This month, our French gourmet hamper of Lorraine's gastronomy in LaBoxDuMois and ToutesLesBox websites: outstanding ratings!
