Ariane Daguin Behind every great chef is a resourceful and tireless purveyor, and many of America's best kitchens rely on D'Artagnan founder Ariane Daguin, whose valuable stock of foie gras, terrines, and other fine meat products is without peer. To celebrate her company's 25th anniversary, we've invited Daguin and a cadre of Gascon chefs to prepare a decadent Beard House tasting inspired by the D'Artagnan catalog, complete with regional wines and fine Armagnacs. Take a gander at the menu below: Hors d’Oeuvre Foie Gras and Black Truffle Tartine Chestnut Soup Laguiole Cheese Rolls with Salsify and Duck Prosciutto Wild Boar Bacon–Wrapped Prunes Dinner Creamy Tarbais Bean Soup with Black Truffles Pan-Seared Foie Gras with Caramelized Apples and Sweet-and-Sour Sauce Pigs’ Foot and Porcini Stew Hazelnut-Crusted Venison Medallion with Truffle Buttered Gascon-Style Grits Traditional Gascon-Style Dessert with Prunes and Hazelnuts Click here to view the complete menu.
