RED DELUXE FRENCH HORS D'OEUVRES GIFT BOX

RED DELUXE FRENCH HORS D'OEUVRES GIFT BOX

We couldn't resist the temptation to prepare a special 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 red 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?

FRENCH DELUXE GIFT BOX FOR GOURMET AND HAPPY HORS D'OEUVRES MOMENTS!

Château la Fleur Penin, Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2015, red wine (75cl, 14º)

1 star in the "guide des vins Hachette 2019"

saint-emilion-grand-cru-chateau-la-fleur-peninWinemaker: Patrick Carteyron, Château La Fleur Penin

Château La Fleur Penin is the fulfillment of an old dream of Patrick Carteyron (Château Penin), which he made come true in 2011 by buying this small property of 2.5 hectares of vines from 30 to 70 years old in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation that he leads in sustainable agriculture.

And on this other exceptional vintage 2015, the result is superb!

This blend of Merlot (85%) and Cabernet Franc (15%) gives us a dense wine, rich on the nose with hints of ripe fruit and spices, already in harmony on the palate with a beautiful persistence, everything we love about a great Saint-Emilion. A delicious Saint-Emilion Grand Cru from today but which can also be aged for a few years in the cellar.

Obviously this superb Saint-Emilion is a real delight with the delicatessen of your Deluxe hors d'oeuvres gift box.

 
Artisanal rillettes of poulard with Périgord black truffles (100 g)

French-poulard-rillettes-black-truffles-perigordArtisan : Le Comptoir du Fougeray. / Epicure 2018 awards, Bronze medal

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 poulard (from the best breeding farms awarded with the “label Rouge” certification) is emulsified in its own juices in a cast iron pot for more than 15 hours and seasoned with black truffles from Périgord.

Serve it spread on toast to experience all the rich nuances of its delectable flavour. A truly unique and delicious recipe to enhance a gourmet hors d’oeuvres feast.

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 saucisson sec La Gourmet Box food basket appetizerArtisan: 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. And because it is excellent of course !

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, zucchini and basil SPREAD (110 g)

French-gourmet-spread-goat-cheese-and-basilProducer: Le Temps des Mets.

This original goat cheese and basil 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 zucchinis, goat cheese, spices and basil: just a delicious mix when served on toasts.

 
THE AUTHENTIC FRENCH DUCK RILLETTES WITH HOMEMADE FOIE GRAS (120 G)

French homemade foie-gras Rillettes French hors d'oeuvres gift by la Gourmet BoxArtisan: 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)

Tapenade terrine French food and drink gift boxProducer: 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.

Organic caramelized cashew nuts with a hint of Kâmpôt pepper (110 g)

organic-cashew-nuts-vegetarian-boxArtisan: 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)

craft made products Cantal-Auvergne gourmet basketArtisan: 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.
