The French term “Foie Gras” literally means “fat liver” of specially fattened geese and ducks. One must not mistake the genuine “Foie Gras” for what is commonly
called “Pâtés”. Indeed, the term “Pâtés” may be used in a general description applied universally to a mixture of meats, all kinds of livers, fish or vegetables, which
may very well be of first class quality but nevertheless beyond any comparison with the genuine Goose or Duck Liver “Foie Gras”

A little History: Foie Gras, The Pinnacle of Excellence

Foie Gras is a delicacy deeply rooted in Western gastronomic tradition.
2,500 BC Egyptians noticed that geese and ducks, before migrating,
gorged themselves and developed an oversized delicious liver.
Later the ancient Greeks and Romans liked to overfeed their geese
with a diet of figs so the livers would take on the sweetness
of the fruit. Jewish people used goose fat as an alternative to
pork lard.
In France Gascogny, Alsace and Périgord are the regions
known for mastering the art of Foie Gras from raising the animals
to transform the whole mass into a culinary triumph. Truffles
provide a delicious counterpoint to the delicate texture of the
Foie Gras.

Valette Products

Valette Foie Gras is a third-generation family business created by the
grand-father of Mr. Jacques Valette in 1920. The main objective was and
still is to produce high quality foie gras. Nowadays, Valette Foie Gras
has a range of more than 450 different products – duck foie gras, goose
foie gras, traditional and innovative cooked dishes – and continually
develops new products whilst respecting the old traditional art of
cooking. Adrien Valette, the grand-father of our present owner, Jacques
Valette, travelled from market to market in search of the best products
like foie gras, truffles, mushrooms and walnuts. He became an unrivalled
judge on the quality of these products and founded his company in 1920
in Saint Clair, a small village just eight kilometers from Gourdon (in
the Lot), in the heart of an area called Bouriane, between Périgord and
Quercy, in the South West of France. In 1984, Adrien Valette’s grandson
Jacques was made company manager. With his young and energetic vision,
he has promoted the reputation of Valette Foie Gras around the world by
attending gastronomic fairs and food shows, and by creating Valette’s
first mail order catalogue. The Valette Group currently processes and
markets 1.300.0001.300.000 IGP-approved Perigord ducks per year. In 2008, Valette
obtained 4 new medals at the Concours Général Agricole of Paris, making
a total of 34 medals in 23 years. Today, Valette is a leading group in
the foie gras market: with a workforce of 230 people in 2007
