Culinary30 – Bon Appétit

Foy Grass

Yup. That’s how I pronounced Foie Gras the first time I saw it written out. Wanna know what it means? “Fat liver”. Wanna know how it’s made? …No. No, you don’t. (Here’s a link anyways in case you have a heart of stone and a gut of steel.)

Since Foie Gras is traditionally a French cuisine, we took ourselves to Pied-à-Terre in the Mount Pleasant area of Vancouver. It also happened to be my friend, Ambre’s birthday and just like Foie Gras, she is French! Win win.

Of course I had to try a few other new things while we were there: duck breast and scallops.

Now, let’s just pretend that it really WAS just butter. Liver butter. Duck liver butter. Sad little stuffed baby duck liver butter. Ok, it wasn’t butter at all.

  2. Foie gras is incredibly cruel and the fact that you’re promoting it on your blog is disgusting. Greedy and horrible.
