    Holy Moses! A kosher foie gras does exsist!! It's made by a company called French Delice, you can contact them at frenchdelice@hotmail.com

    It's kosher status is well respected so feel free to invite your Hasidic friends and neighbors to your meal.

      Now THIS is top-notch information! I'd never even thought about kosher fois gras but I'll bet it is damned good!

      thanks for a new gustatory toy!

        Thanks for the compliment! I've got the scoop (and the chic-est shabbat dinners in town too). It feels good to eat well and get "brownie points" for doing it too!

          Not what you're asking, but I had fabulous fois gras at the Jerusalem Hilton. May be a little bit out of the way for you, however.

          I think I read a Wall St Journal article once about Israel being the #2 source of fois gras in the world.

          Of course, knowing how it's produced and matching that ethically with kashrut is another story...

            Just to make you foie gras fans jealous, my wedding was at Gundel Restaurant in Budapest, one of the finest restaurants in Europe. Our appetizer included incredible goose liver that I can still taste (in a good way:-). Oh yeah, everything was kosher!:-)

            Does anyone know what stores in NYC import this felice stuff?
