      good question: prepared, thanks.

    2. Fatted Calf has a terrine and a torchon on their list at the moment. Polarica has a large selection, including goose. So does Gourmet Corner in San Mateo.

      You could also call Sonoma Artisan Foie Gras, Hudson Valley, and d'Artagnan and ask for local retailers.

      105 Quint St, San Francisco, CA

      Fatted Calf
      644-C First Street, Napa, CA 94559

      The Gourmet Corner
      873 N San Mateo Drive, San Mateo, CA 94401

        I'm pretty sure I've seen foie gras at Golden Gate Meats in the Ferry Building.

          The definitely carry Grade A lobes of foie gras regularly. I have not seen terrine or "au torchon," though, but am not at all sure that they don't.

          If OP is ever in Berkeley, Cafe Rouge has "au torchon" frequently. I happen not to have tried it but like all their charcuterie that I've tried. Fabrique Delices is decent.

      2. If you want prepared Fabrique Delices is at the San Mateo Farmers Mkt on Wed and Saturdays, they have Terrine slices cryovac'd. Would recommend Fatted Calf's Torchon as well.

        RL thank you for the link to GC, I am going to stop by there soon.

          Fabrique Delices sells at a number of farmers markets and in some markets. You might check out their website to see where or give them a call
