Terrine de Foie Gras de Canard

jdsoda Nov 6, 2007 12:49 PM

When I was at Bouchon in Napa this past summer, my friend and I shared a 5oz french canning jar of fois gras (and yes, we ate the whole jar) accompanied w/french bread, butter and sea salt (and wine of course) --and I must say, when I need to "go to a happy place" --I think of this experience. With this said, does anyone know of a place that one can get something similar?

    The Little Next Door has a lovely duck foie gras terrine.

      I would call to check, but as recently as 6 weeks ago, this same dish was on Opus' menu, in two differeing sizes. Very good.

        I'm trying to find the same thing - last year, we were in Strausbourg, France - the land of fois gras!!! We bought cans from Georges Bruck and Edouarrd Artzner - we love the Georges Bruck. Unfortunately, we're running low now so we're thinking of ordering some but it would be so much easier and cheaper if we can get it here.

        Here are the websites of both if we don't have any luck:



        Hopefully, someone will respond.

        I'm looking for the cans of fois gras that I can have over breakfast at home, rather than in a restaurant.

            Have you check Surfas and Monsieur Marcel? I know I've seen canned/jarred foie there.

                If you can get to Nichole's in South Pas, her prices are usually better than Monsieur Marcel for the same items. I know her duck fat was about half Marcel's price last time I looked.
