Buying Confit de Canard

Confit de Canard UK sells out of Duck Confit – can you believe it…

December duck buying trip… we didn’t buy enough duck#

Goodness knows that we thought we’d have enough tins of duck for a few months and goodness knows that December-January is the busiest time* but I thought that we’d done enough. Now we have to go and get more and in the meantime (SORRY) we’re out of stock of confit duck – though we have plenty of other duck related products including manchons, gesiers and cassoulet – not to mention the foie gras that no-one seems to have noticed. (Those that tested the foie gras de canard say it’s fab…)

#How do you spell whaa, whaa, whaa… Like a duck ending a sit com.  Maybe whack but without pronouncing the “ck”. Duck sounds need their own letters from a new alphabet or at least a phonetic transliteration.

* I always thought that people would buy confit duck in August~September just after their summer holidays…

Talking of nothing… did you know that fat ducks come from Brittany as well as the South West France?

Or so I’m told by a potential new supplier. In fact they say that a lot of the ducks prepared in le Sud Ouest are from the Nord… I think I’m off their to test buy fom them in February. I’d like to go sooner but I have other work to do (I’m afraid) and that pays the bills. I’m awaiting a taster/tester from them but so far it hasn’t arrived. I wonder why that is. Maybe I’m not a big enough customer? Who knows…

Meanwhile abject apologies for being out of stock of your favourite confit de canard…

Confit de Canard UK Goes Electronic…

Shopping for Confit de Canard updates…

Well, we now have two major technological advances to help the UK to buy confit de canard (and associated duck products) … The first is the final inclusion of PayPal which I know works now because I had to “buy” something (Confit Cassoulet – our lowest cost item) to test the system.  I was too impatient to wait for a customer (which we’ve now had) and also, more importantly, I  didn’t want some one who was shopping for duck confit (and thought they could order) to be let down.  So that cost me the Paypal commission!

Secondly, I have finally managed to get a picture of our “best price” Confit de canard  (only £12.95 for the 4 pieces size tin) onto the Google Shopping listing! Hip hip hooray…  To get the info onto their system is reasonably tricky for mere mortals but eventually a couple of weeks ago I got onto it (by uploading a “database”) but they didn’t pick up the image.  Why not – because you’re supposed to put that into the database too! SO I’ve now done that and hopefully we’ll be seen more.  I assume that the products without pictures get put lower down?

None of that may be of interest to somebody who’s just here to buy confit de canard and doesn’t want all the behind the scenes nonsense.  But I was chuffed, so there it is…
