Last Sunday was the opening day for the Foie Gras market in Gers (near Toulouse), in the little town of Samatan.  You wouldn't find there Foies Gras ready to eat but "Canards Gras" (fat duck) to prepare "Confits" and "Magrets" (Duck Breast) and fat livers to prepare the Foie Gras for Christmas! The average price for fresh livers was 30 euros/kg. When processed Foie Gras average price is 90 euros/kg…This is worth making your own Foie Gras !

The same way Americans start looking for the perfect Turkey for Thanksgiving in advance…the French people conduct several investigations to find out the best Foie Gras to put on the Christmas table.

Did you know that this way of preserving duck comes from Ancient Egypt?
French are now the biggest consumers of Foies Gras (71% to the world’s production). When we used to eat an average of 50 gram /inhabitant/year in the 80’s, the level is today of about 300 grams/inhabitant/year.

We were overwhelmed by the wealth of information available when attempting to plan our 6 week self drive holiday in France. Never having been to France before we found the task daunting and sifting through forums full of information only confused us. We have traveled in New Zealand using a New Zealand based travel adviser and decided to look into …

We just returned from a fantastic three weeks in Southwest France. I highly recommend the services of France Just For You, we could never have planned the trip ourselves as well as they did. Laura did the planning and gave us an amazing itinerary, and was available at a moment's notice when we had a plane cancellation on our flight to Bordeaux and …

We wanted my spouse's birthday trip to France to be special and we could not have expected such a perfect time. From initial communication with Emilie by email right up to having a driver meet us in Paris CDG airport, it was a stress-free vacation. Emilie provided first class service throughout and tailored our desire to see Paris, the Loire Valley …
