The gastronomy of the South-West of France cooked in Chiang Mai, delivered to Thailand
From his permaculture farm near Chiang Mai, Xavier Bruzaud-Grille concocts traditional Bigourdane dishes according to the family recipe while applying dietary criteria.
Arriving in Thailand in 2000, the Bigourdan Xavier Bruzaud-Grille took with him his love for the traditional flavours of his native Pyrenees.
When he opened the French gourmet restaurant Bonjour Bangkok in 2009, his menu offered duck in all possible and imaginable forms in Gascony gastronomy!
Now settled in the surroundings of Chiang Mai, Xavier and his family are developing a permaculture farm with everything needed to reproduce from the Thai countryside the culinary treasures of La Bigorre.
The first Barbary ducks arrived at the farm in 2017. Since then, they have been raised organically and in the open air and enjoy a natural diet and grow at their own pace.
Under the brand name Francette, the first name of his mother who passed on her ancestral know-how, Xavier and his team prepare terrines, confits, dried and smoked duck breasts, foie gras, at the rhythm of the farm, slowly, without additives, nor nitrite or nitrate salts, without gluten, and this while respecting the tradition and family recipes.
“I cook all my products with love because my first tasters and fans are my children and my wife, I love to bring them this happiness in their plate”, confides Xavier.
For the holidays, order foie gras terrine, duck terrine with hazelnuts and pistachios, duck liver terrine with porto and truffles or wild taste with pieces of aiguillettes, dried and smoked duck breast or the unavoidable duck confit.
To consume without moderation, Francette products are available online and delivered to your door.
