The Joys of Foie Gras

I’ve made a point to have Foie Gras at some of the best restaurants in the world… Tantris in Munich, Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence, Auberge du Soleil in Napa and Toque in Montreal… and if you don’t love it, then something is wrong with you.

Yes, I’ve gone there.

Before you talk about animal cruelty, I’ve had ducks as pets when I was growing up. They’re nasty creatures, not good with people, animals or even other ducks. The best thing they can aspire to be is Foie Gras, or barring that, a Muscovy Duck Breast.

A little Foie Gras and some cognac as a filling for a ravioli drenched in butter and a little black truffle is a life changing sort of meal. Take a block of pure Foie Gras and serve it seared with a glass of Chateau d’Yquem, it’s enough to make you need to change your shorts (in a good way).

I talked to a duck once, it said “please engorge me so my liver grows so I can produce a perfect Foie Gras”… who am I to disagree?
