What is Foie Gras?
Foie gras is the liver of a goose or duck that has been fattened through a feeding process for a specific period of time. The technique of force-feeding poultry (gavage) was used by the ancient Egyptians as far back as 2500 B.C, and now Foie gras is a popular luxurious delicacy in French cuisine. Foie Gras can be served as a spreadable terrine or pâté, cooked in a jar or in a towel (au torchon), or raw seared and served warm.
