Pan-Seared Foie Gras; Everything you always wanted to know about ME (right) — 7 Comments

  1. Katie I love foie GRAS . You can buy little jars of it here but nothing will ever beat a trip to Toulouse, the whole liver came out onto the table. We all ate what we wanted then it went back they weighed it and charged accordingly. My first bite had me in live for life. X

  2. I used to swear that I would never eat the liver of those poor tortured animals. Then one wonderful, memorial meal at a restaurant on Place Voltaire in Arles, I had some. Oh well, I’m sure those ducks and geese don’t suffer at all. 🙂

  3. Nice to know you better. Great answers. You can only imagine how very, extremely difficult it would be to find foie gras in Central Florida. This will have to be a treat we only enjoy when we get back to France in the spring.

  4. I am so intrigued to try fois gras – I know – I live in the “mini-me” France of Canada – aka Quebec – and zut alors (sorry for bad language) – I have yet to try it. I have had duck pate from Lake Brome – does that count?
    You’ve got me wanting to come back to Spain again – lucky hubby lived there for a year (Albacete – in the middle of nowhere – but close enough to Madrid by train). I was lucky enough to join him there for a month – experience different foods (jamon – hmm encantador) – and we sometimes dream of going back there to live – of course – by the coast – in our sailboat …. nice to dream … Now I need a glass of wine 🙂

  5. Thanks, Ina, it was fun!
    Gilli, OMG! Do you remember the name of the restaurant?
    Brassfrog, they love it – I have it on good authority.
    Susan, spring will be a lovely time to visit – enjoy your foie gras!
    FatCatAnna, I’ve been to Albacete… and I love Madrid. It’s a nice dream – you can do it!
