Tried foie gras recently!

I just came back from a cruise, and had the chance to try a seared foie gras on the trip for my first time... all I can say is WOW! Not what I expected at all... so buttery and delicious. No bitter or odd taste at all. Wonderful stuff...

Though I've tried a great many things, I have to be envious of you. I've never had the opportunity to try foie gras. I'm glad you had such a wonderful experience.

I had it in Paris (of all places!) and I'm not much of a fan. It isn't something I would actively seek out to eat.

I think there is quite a lot of variations and types, and several different grades and qualities of foie gras. I had what appeared to be a whole foie gras or piece of a whole, seared with some sort of glaze applied. From the price of the meal, I would assume it was a good grade.

I am a fan and I would seek it out with a glass of Sauternes ready and waiting! Glad you shared your experience!
