Anyone know where to find the mythical free range Foi Gras from Spain in Paris?

      That explains it fairly well. The geese fatten themselves of there own accord. I asked at the foi gras counter at Gallerie Lafayett today and the two behind the counter had a good laugh.

        That sounds great. Never heard of it before.

          No body knows where to get, how about in Spain?

            Ibergour lists it as unavailable. It might be that it is not publicly available anymore.

              I had understood it was a seasonal product as the geese only "gorged" naturally just prior to migration. I would assume this happens only twice a year (once there, once back). Could it be it is only available in the Spring and Autumn?

      Have you asked in Bellota Bellotta (rue Jean Nicotin the 7eme) or Fogon (5eme) both are restaurants with top notch Spanish food so they may know, Belotta does sell ham to take away.
