About Mirepoix

Welcome to Mirepoix, a food and cooking blog that focuses on foie gras, truffles, caviar, charcuterie and other specialty foods available through our website, Mirepoixusa.com. We hope you will enjoy our recipes, preparation and serving tips, history, and reflections about enjoying food, wine, and culinary travel.

Mirepoix USA is owned and operated by Laurel Pine.

How we got started:

Mirepoix USA launched in late 2004. When I first pondered the idea of creating an on-line business, I was told by Vic Johnson, an internet marketing expert, to pick a subject matter about which I was passionate. One that would keep my interest, even if it took a very long time to get results. He said to pick a subject or industry about which I was knowledgeable and could provide value to others. Also, he suggested finding a niche market, because it would be easier to gain a presence in a smaller, more focused market.

The subject that immediately came to my mind was French food, and specifically foie gras.  I had been introduced to foie gras six or seven years before launching the business, and this luscious product had quickly become one of my favorite foods. The site was launched with foie gras as the focus, but we also offered French charcuterie and duck products such as duck legs confit and fresh duck breasts, and duck salami.

Over the last several years, we have expanded EnjoyFoieGras.com to include truffles, truffle products, caviar, cheese, Wagyu beef and US Kobe Beef, and gourmet gift baskets and gourmet food. It’s been really fun developing the site, making friends in the food blogging and social media communities, and working with our wonderful, loyal customer base. We are so very fortunate to have met so many interesting and genuinely nice people.

We hope you enjoy our blog and our ecommerce website.  We welcome your comments and feedback, so please feel free to contact us anytime and please post your thoughts on our blog. We are always striving to improve our business and provide better service to our clients.

Bon Appetit!
