The Controversial Foie' Gras
Foie Gras is a pate made from goose liver which is very expensive that makes it a luxurious food on the table or can be duck liver also which is slightly cheaper. This famous delicacy in French cuisine is usually marinated in Cognac and truffles. Sold in whole usually, or prepared into mousse, parfait or as a side dish for steaks.
Formerly known as the "Strasbourg Pie" because that city being a major producer of this product. The fattening of the liver is achieved through forced feeding of nutritional food like corn and the procedure called gavage. This processed is now very rare since there is a law that prohibits force feeding on animals.
Am sure some groups like PETA won't buy the idea of even suggesting this dish...
