We couldn't resist the temptation to prepare a special food and wine gift box packed with exceptional hors d'oeuvres that would allow our customers to sample the best of French cuisine. Pretty on the outside and chock-full of scrumptious products on the inside, this gourmet gift box has everything you need to enjoy a grand apéro, a word that describes the time-honoured French tradition of sharing drinks, hors d'oeuvres and golden moments with family and friends.
Salty, spicy, crunchy, creamy... in this box you'll find all the savoury staples of an authentic French hors d'oeuvres party, including an exceptional white wine, for a gourmet experience that's guaranteed to please even the most discerning palates. We've even thrown in an eye-popping—or, better said, cork-popping—surprise... but then again, maybe it's just an oven-fresh baguette! Can you stand the suspense?
DELUXE FRENCH FOOD AND WINE GIFT BOX FOR GOURMET AND HAPPY HORS D'OEUVRES MOMENTS!
Cuvée Les Monts Damnés, AOP SANCERRE, WHITE WINE, 2018 (75 CL)
Winery: Domaine Bailly Reverdy.
This family-owned winery run by Franck Bailly and his nephew is a great surprise for the gourmands! When we visited their vineyards, located in Sancerre in central France, one of the most renowned French terroir for white wine, it was love at first sight: the owners are delightful, the grapes are grown using organic, environmentally-friendly agricultural methods and harvested by hand, and the delicate floral wines are well worth discovering.
For this premium French appetizers box, we chose Les Monts Damnés (100% Sauvignon Blanc), the first wine of the winery. This wine is produced with grapes picked on one of the most famous terroir of the Sancerrois called “Les Monts Damnés”.
This great Sancerre present a charming, complex and aromatic nose with citrus notes (lemon, grapefruit) and white fruits: apricot, peach, pear. Wood barrel ageing gives the wine a toasted, spicy and vanilla note. Quite round in the mouth, with plenty of expression, you can find the citrus and woody aromas as well as a beautiful minerality.
A great wine with a subtle balance between finesse and aromatic complexity, delicate and elegant with a lovely length. In two words: elegant and exceptional! Ideal as an aperitif, it will perfectly go with the divine appetizers of your gourmet box. You can also drink it with cooked crustaceans (a good idea for Christmas) or cheeses.
Serve chilled but not too cold (8-10º) to appreciate its full aromatic richness.
ARTICHOKE DELIGHT WITH SUMMER WHITE TRUFFLE (110 G)
Artisan: Le Temps des Mets.
Here's a gourmet spread that will quickly become a must for your aperitifs! The cream of artichoke with white summer truffle is delicious to spread on toast or lightly toasted brioches. You will find in this melting texture the elegant taste of the artichoke, enhanced by the white summer truffle that subtly diffuses its flavors. A real treat for foodies!
ARTISAN SAUCISSON SEC WITH ITS CLOTH BAG (320 g)
Artisan: Maison Duculty.
This dry-cured farmhouse sausage is a renowned speciality of Lyon, one of the cradles of French gastronomy. It comes in many different sizes and flavours: our box contains the original saucisson sec, but there are also nut, peppercorn, cheese, smoked and other varieties. We chose this particular sausage because it is made the traditional way from fresh pork with no dyes or preservatives. Important: like all natural sausages, this product has a long shelf life and will not rot unless you keep it for several years. But it is possible and indeed common to find something called “bloom”, a white or occasionally greenish mould that grows naturally on the sausage casing. This mould is penicillium, from which we derive penicillin, and is found in a variety of food products (such as Roquefort and other blue cheeses). It is perfectly healthy and is even a sign of the sausage’s quality as long as it does not develop an unpleasant odour. The casing is 100% natural and perfectly edible, but we recommend that you remove it before eating to appreciate the full flavour and finesse of this artisanal sausage. Store in the canvas bag included in the gift box and keep it on the bottom shelf of your fridge. Serve in thin slices for a deliciously flavourful appetizer.
DÉLICE DE CHEVRE, GOAT CHEESE, ROSEMARY AND BLACK OLIVE SPREAD (100 g)
Producer: Le Temps des Mets.
This original olive spread is sure to delight your guests, adding colour and flavour to any gourmet moment. Made using artisan methods by a small local producer in Six Fours les Plages, it contains black olives, goat cheese, spices, aromatic herbs and extra virgin olive oil: just a delicious mix when served on toasts.
THE AUTHENTIC FRENCH DUCK RILLETTES WITH HOMEMADE FOIE GRAS (120 G)
Artisan: Danos Frères.
Rillettes, a 100% French delicacy, is a savoury spread similar to pâté but with a coarser, meatier texture topped by a protective film of lard. The all-natural product we chose was made the old-fashioned way: shredded duck (raised by the artisans) is emulsified in its own juices for hours and seasoned with salt and pepper. When it get colder, our artisan just add some piece of foie-gras. Just a must-try ! Serve it spread on toast to experience all the rich nuances of its delectable flavour.
PROVENÇAL TAPENADE TERRINE (100 g)
Producer: Les Oréliades.
Since 1982, the family business Les Oréliades, based in the Var town of Salernes, offers a wide variety of Provence's finest gourmet products. All of their recipes, prepared by hand using only local ingredients, are highly original, festive and inspired by tradition. This olive tapenade terrine, with aromas reminiscent of a soft summer breeze, is a savoury blend of black olives, capers and olive oil. We recommend serving it on toast as hors d’oeuvres or the perfect addition to a salad of lettuce, minced onion and caramelized tomato.
PROVENÇAL FARIGOULE TERRINE (100 g)
Producer: Les Oréliades.
This little jar is packed with the seductive aromas of sunshine and nature. A combination of warm, lively flavours, the main ingredient in this terrine is farigoule, a liqueur distilled from one of the region's most typical herbs: thyme. Ideal for a snack or appetizer.
PROVENÇAL LAVENDER TERRINE (100 g)
Producer: Les Oréliades.
Bask in the warm southern sun a little while longer with this terrine scented with lavender, Provence's most famous flower. The deliciously aromatic blossom adds a hint of freshness to the mixture, making it the perfect way to liven up an ordinary salad. Surprise your guests with this cheerful, original combination!
PROVENÇAL FIG TERRINE (100 g)
Producer: Les Oréliades.
To round out this feast of Provençal flavours, we propose a sophisticated, subtle terrine made from figs, one of the region's characteristic fruits. Serve with an endive salad for a match made in heaven.
Organic caramelized cashew nuts with a hint of Kâmpôt pepper (110 g)
Artisan: L'Attelier de Clisson.
At this small shop in Guérande, a town in southwest France famed for its butter and salt, every product is made using traditional methods and all-natural local ingredients. Nuts are the common denominator in every recipe, but they add sugar, caramel, spices or condiments to create a wide range of flavours and textures. For our box we chose organic caramelized cashew nuts seasoned with Kâmpôt pepper for their originality (a change from the more conventional cashews), surprising taste (the pepper-sweet contrast is outstanding) and super-extra-crunchy texture. These sinfully delicious morsels are too tempting to resist.
Savoury Organic Cantal cheese biscuits (120 g)
Artisan: Biscuiterie Apiflor.
We made our way to a village called Madic, on the border between the départements of Cantal and Corrèze, where we met an artisan who makes delicious organic traditional biscuits in bronze moulds. Genuine Cantal AOC cheese is added to the biscuit dough for a truly unique flavour. Ideal for nibbling with a glass of wine from your gourmet box—a crisp gourmet treat! Serving suggestion: to bring out the full flavour of these biscuits, bake them in the oven 2-3 minutes before serving.
