ISO: Foie Gras

Any meat shops/markets in Chestnut Hill/Brookline area that sell foie gras (lobes or slices)? Don't want cooked pates etc, want raw foie gras for cooking at home.

      Savenors has it. You can purchase by the lobe or by pre-cut slices. Butcher Boy in North Andover also has it.

          I'd just call ahead because the last time I bought it they were almost out and only had the teeniest bit left. I bought the tiny chunk anyway, but if you need a certain amount, I'd call to confirm.

            Just bought a slice this weekend. Very friendly service, would definitely shop there again. He cut a nice piece to order for me.

            Seared it and served with some caramelized grapefruit segments. My whole place was in a white smoky haze for a few minutes thereafter with the delicious aroma of seared foie gras. Wish I had some ice wine to wash it down.....
