POULET DE RACAN
Prized for its exceptional quality this French variety of poultry was born and raised outdoors with the greatest care in the Pays de Racan in the heart of Indre et Loire. Widely adulated by the finest connoisseurs, Racan's poultry enjoys international recognition in the world of gastronomy and you will find it at the table of many starred restaurants around the world.
The Racan hen is a white hen with blue legs, she is very tasty with firm flesh and a taste close to the guinea fowl which will greatly satisfy lovers of exceptional poultry meat.
This high-quality Racan hen is fed exclusively on non-GMO cereals, all with respect to animal welfare. The hen also feeds on berries found on fruit trees. This natural food gives it a quality of taste and exceptional flavours that you absolutely must taste!
All of our poultry is prepared in house. We prepare each bird on the day it arrives to us from France. We use trussing needles to tie the birds into a the perfect shape for oven roasting which means closing any cavities so the birds cook evenly.

TRANSIT TIMES & PACKAGING
All ingredients that we sell are hand selected choosing from the best product available.
We only use premium express courier services and aim to have produce out of our hands and into yours in the shortest possible time.
All perishable goods orders are safely packed in high quality mixed recyclable insulated packaging to keep your products perfect through the courier network, guaranteeing freshness for a minimum of 2 full days in transit. Much longer in colder seasons.
The vast majority of frozen food shipments arrive frozen but we cannot guarantee this. In the event that your order has defrosted it should still be at a very low temperature when you receive it and therefore fine to put in straight in your freezer. Refreezing is only unsafe if the product has reached 8°c. It is worth mentioning that supermarkets routinely sell defrosted food as "fresh", with the advice that it may be frozen when you get home.
All fresh truffles are sent in a foil resealable pack with an absorbent paper. This is suitable for storing in your fridge. If storing truffles for more than a few days we recommend wrapping them in paper towel or using a Tuberpac. Fresh truffles are always best consumed as soon as possible.
