As we know, there's no such thing as a free link. As payback, I need to know whether anyone has seen in a shop or restaurant Pateria de Sousa foie gras, where I can get it, and what the price was.
A friend of mine had an article in the Globe a couple of weeks ago about it. According to her, it's not commercially available in Canada (although there is a company that ships it in Europe). There is a farm here in Ontario that is producing very small quantities of a similar product for $110/kg. You can read more about it here (sorry if it doesn't link properly - my computer is having technical troubles today):
