Of the trio of gift sets on offer, The French Laundry Sparkling Wine & Caviar Gift Set is, perhaps, the most luxurious, with a price tag of $1,000.
The box contains a bottle of Schramsberg Blanc de Blanc Chardonnay-based Brut sparkling wine; a two-ounce serving of Sterling White Sturgeon Caviar; two mother of pearl caviar spoons; and a French Laundry buckwheat blini mix which requires the addition of milk, heavy cream and eggs.
For the black truffle lover, Keller has also developed a black truffle risotto kit from Per Se.
With the exception of butter and onions, the kit comes with all the ingredients needed to replicate the dish from his New York outpost.
Inside the engraved wooden box, recipients will find three ounces of black truffle from Provence; an engraved wooden truffle shaver; Carnaroli rice from Northern Italy – considered the ‘king of rice’; organic white truffle-infused extra virgin olive oil; grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, Battenkill Farms’ heavy cream, Per Se chicken stock and a recipe card. The risotto kit is priced at $850.
And for the sweet tooth in your life, there’s also a $260 chocolate tart kit from his famous Bouchon Bakery that comes with a tart shell mix; 70 percent dark Guittard chocolate coins; Tahitian vanilla bean; a Bouchon oven mitt; and a 500 ml bottle of Meyer Family Port wine.
Orders must be placed by December 15. Shipments are only available in the US, with the exception of New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Vermont and West Virginia due to shipping laws.
Meanwhile, last month New York’s Le Bernardin chef Eric Ripert likewise launched his own line of premium caviar in time for the holiday season. An eight-ounce tin is priced at $1,050.
