Foie gras products, truffle products, etc.

Does anyone know where I can buy canned foie gras and truffle products. Since they are easily found in France, I figured someone would have taken the initiative to import them. Preferably San Francisco, but any info about these products (like blocs of foie or truffle juice).

      1. Truffle juice can be had at Le Santuaire. The best place to buy raw whole foie gras is Polarica.

        1. We just had some foie gras for New Year's that we bought at Fatted Calf, it was delicious!

          1. If you're looking specifically for canned foie gras and jarred truffle products, I think the Gourmet Corner, an outgrowth of the Le Village French products importer, should have it. They definitely used to have it at their warehouse sales...give them a call.

            If you want to prepare fresh foie gras for yourself, try Fatted Calf (probably pre-prepared terrines ready to eat), Polarica (raw, grades A and B available, only whole lobes, cheapest fresh Foie prices, linked in other post) and Golden Gate Meats (more expensive than Polarica, probably the same source, will often cut a lobe in half to sell to you since they have enough retail turnover).
