We begin this wonderful segment with an interview with the esteemed Ariane Daguin from D’Artagnan. Her company was founded in 1985. Since this time she has supplied the finest restaurants not only in New York, but also around the country. She now makes these products available to consumers through her website. We are proud to say that our gastrotommy insiders receive a 20% discount on all their products. Next up on the show is our dear friend Herb Eckhouse from La Quercia in Norwalk, Iowa. Herb and his brilliant wife Kathy make what many consider to be the finest cured meats in the US and as delicious as any made in the world. Herb shares his story from conceiving the idea to produce proscuitto, to living in Parma, Italy and then producing these celebrated meats. Again, our gastro insiders get a wonder discount on these items. We know you will love listening to these great artisan producers.
