Our tips for a perfect Frenchgiving aka Thanksgiving with a French wink
by Myline Descamps
Frenchgiving = adding a French touch to your Thanksgiving and saying Merci a lot
First thing first: the famous turkey. We selected the best ones raised by👩🍳 Ariane Daguin and even have the sides to go with it! To show off your cooking talents, use our roaster made by CRISTEL, the star of French cookware. Dare to cook this year the “Dinde aux marrons” (chestnut stuffed turkey) to serve with our lentils cooked from champagne oui oui!
For the sweet final note we suggest to try our famous 🌰 chestnut spread ''crème de marrons'' on top of our lava cake or to add a pinch of 🍊 orange flower water ''fleur d'oranger'' to Madeleines. And to please your guests even more, we have macarons made by the famous chef 👨🍳Thierry Atlan and his special Fall edition. Or an assortment of French cream puffs made by Barachou for the lucky New Yorkers.
And because a nice meal and good company need a beautiful table we have a wide range of tableware that will make your guests feel as part of the Versailles court 👑. 🇫🇷 Have a look at our Pillivuyt porcelain selection with its elegant winks to the Eiffel Tower or our 💛 Gold Degrenne flatware🍴
Awake all the senses. The importance of ''parfum d'ambiance'' room spray is as important as your home decor. Bergamote and orange blossom are the hits of the season.
And last but not least : the hostess gift! We have you covered with the perfect gift set to tell him/her a huge MERCI. 🎁
Bonus: you know the rule about the day after a festive dinner : it is the left over. But do you know the one about saying after being ''pompette'', nothing is better than a ''raclette'' ;)
Since we arrived in the US and celebrate Thanksgiving, on Friday we eat leftovers but on Saturday we enjoy our traditional raclette :) It's a meal based on melted cheese that celebrates sharing and good food! You need a special machine and you then pour melted cheese on warm potatoes and charcuterie, '' une tuerie'' :)
