When I arrived at D'Artagnan, the leading purveyor of foie gras, game meat, organic poultry, pâtés, sausages and smoked delicacies in the U.S., it was a sad day. Co-Founder and CEO, Ariane Daguin, and the company were mourning the loss of celebrity chef and dear friend, Anthony Bourdain.
I share this information because our visit was naturally, more philosophical, than practical. However, the beliefs we discussed are very relevant to our conversation on culture.
And in the funny way that life works, we also got to celebrate new life that day (more on this full-circle moment in the blog).
