a christmas box

Today, I got a Christmas box at work.

The contents of the box are as follows:
  • Foie Gras de Canard entier du Perigord (duck liver paté)
  • Rilletes de Lapin (shredded rabbit with herbs, salt and duck fat)
  • Le Poulet aux queues d'ecrivisses (potted chicken with shrimp tails)
  • Le lingot au foie d'oie (goose liver paté)
  • Confit aux deux poivrons et paprika doux (marinated red and yellow peppers)
  • La Specialite de piperade de canard confit au foie de canard (onions, peppers and tomatoes with duck thigh and liver)
  • Pate de canard au foie de canard et aux cepes (duck liver paté with mushrooms)
  • La terrine de caille au muscat de beaumes de Venise (quail paté)
  • Truffes fantaisie (chocolate truffles)
  • Les petites madeleines (madeleines in syrup)
  • Chateau Lousteau Vieil 2007

A veritable cornucopia of Christmas delights. As long as you're not a vegetarian, that is.

I wonder how many ducks had to die to make this Christmas box? Not to mention chickens, geese, rabbits and quails. I am not complaining- I love me some foie gras- I just can't imagine how I could even begin to put a dent in the quantity of paté I now have in my larder. Oh, my.


  1. I'm sure everything in the basket will travel well enough and that your family can rise to the occasion.

  2. I swear to God, if I don't see some of that basket in Chicago, you're sleeping on the balcony.
