I Love Picard

 There is a chain of stores in France, Picard, which sells gourmet frozen food. There are very few things that I have bought there that I haven’t liked. We have bought fois gras and baked it and it was fabulous. I got my stuffed turkey for Thanksgiving there-wonderful. I use many of their vegetables and desserts. What I like is that every month they have something new to try. This month it was food from Thailand. I love variety. They also sell frog legs lined up on little scewers. I’m not a fan of frog legs but this looks really handy if the need ever arises.

 Some of their best things are desserts. We recently discovered a really wonderful ice cream made with champagne.

 Here’s the box

It comes in these cute little containers looking like champagne bottles.

Here’s a spoonful. It has raisins in it, rather like Rum and Raisin ice cream. It really is tasty.

  1. I will have to try them, there is one next to Grand Frais in our town which I love, but now with baby on the way… frozen might be the wave of the future for us! Glad to know that its tasty stuff. That ice cream looks heavenly!

  2. I loooove Picard too. Pretty much all their ice cream is wonderful. I’ve seen those champagne bottles but haven’t tried them yet. I like their lemon sorbet that is served in a frozen lemon

  3. I wouldn’t say that it tastes like champagne, just alcohol, a little like rum as an after taste. It is sweet and creamy and very good. Linda

  4. I could do without the frog legs but I, too, have fallen in love with Picard. I’ve only scraped the surface of what’s there. Might have to try out that paté and will DEFINITELY look for those champagne desserts!
