Where to buy Foie Gras in Paris
My family and I are staying for 10 in Paris from Christmas day until after New Years. Does any member of Chowhound have knowledge of where to be top quality foie gras in Paris. We are staying in apartment with a full kitchen and I know it would be wonderful to have it available to eat in the apartment [plus a relative bargain]. Thanks in advance for any and all advice and guidance.
many great places, and mostly different kind of great foie gras: very flavoured with cognac and truffle, more on the actual liver taste, more about the smoothiness... The match with the bread, salad, and other asides is also very important. So I would recommend to apply the golden rule of food shopping in Paris: don't buy if you can't taste.
That said, some adresses where I buy my foie gras: Divay, rue Bayen ; Pou, avenu des Ternes; les papilles, rue des martyrs; Desnoyer, regalez-vous.com; Lesourd rue Lecourbe and his charcutier neighbour whose name I forgot; la maison du jambon rue cler; richard rue de Sevres.
Finally, Senderens usually makes foie gras on order at Christmas, cooked at very low temperature and super melty -- great with a very neutral bread like brioche or white toast.
