Ariane + Ariane
The dynamic Ariane Daguin, owner of D’Artagnan, will discuss the controversial subject of foie gras, including policy and her company’s role in the market. At the vanguard of the farm-to-table movement, today D'Artagnan is the leading purveyor of organic poultry, game, foie gras, pates, sausages, smoked delicacies, and wild mushrooms to the nation.
Celebrity Top Chef Ariane Duarte commands the kitchen at CulinAriane, one NJ's most consistently acclaimed restaurants. During our Foie Gras seminar, Chef Ariane will create a custom D'Artagnan foie gras dish for guests to enjoy, while they sip a custom paired wine.
