3rd Quarter Best Sellers

It's time for me to drumroll our 3rd quarter best sellers! And it's time for you to take 20% off all of them with code TOPQ3. Don't miss out!

 

While Tagada strawberry candy (a French kids' favorite) is a newcomer to our top 12, the list is otherwise crowded with beloved usual suspects:

baking classics Francine all purpose wheat flour and Nestlé Dessert dark baking chocolate;

cripsy Heudebert biscottes, Chipster potato chips, TUC crackers, LU Petit Beurre, and St Michel Galettes;

bubbly Lipton Peach iced tea, Liptonic sparkling iced tea, and Orangina citrus soda;

super popular Teisseire grenadine syrup (a delicious ruby-colored mix of berries).

 

Fun fact: Chipster is that rare French food product replicating an American favorite (that is no longer available in its original version). Many of our American customers who grew up on Chipster potato chips are over the moon when they find them on our website. We know because they are pretty vocal about it. ;)

 

Enjoy the flavors. Take good care of yourself.

Snail & chanterelle stuffed potatoes

This classic with a twist will win over the foodies in your life!

 

Ingredients (serves 4)

4 large potatoes

16 Burgundy snails

15g dried chanterelles

for garlic Béchamel sauce

25cl milk

25g (2 Tbsp) butter

1 Tbsp all purpose flour

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

2 Tbsp breadcrumbs


Directions
Bring some water to a boil and soak the dried chanterelles for 20-30 minutes to rehydrate.
Wash the potatoes without removing the skin.
Steam cook 20 minutes, take out and a let cool.
Cut the potatoes in halves lengthwise, dig a hole with a teaspoon (you keep the potato flesh to make mashed potatoes).
Drain the snails and chanterelles, cut the mushrooms into pieces.
Garnish each half potato with 2 snails and one tsp of mushroom pieces.
Prepare the garlic Béchamel sauce: melt the butter in a pan over low heat.
Add flour when it’s just melted, mix all vigorously. Mix with one-third of cold milk, beat with a whisk until thickened, then add the whole milk stirring regularly. Incorporate the minced garlic and chopped parsley, mix well.
Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
Pour the Béchamel on potatoes, sprinkle breadcrumbs and place in an oven tray. Place under the oven grill for 5-10 min, until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy.
