What is oie rotie aux pruneaux?

I'm reading a Dean Koontz book and he mentioned a character was eating "oie rotie aux pruneaux" So I'm just curious, does anybody know what it is? I typed it in search but I couldn't read what came up. (French) Thanks

Oie Rôtie aux Pruneaux literally means goose roasted with prunes. There's no actual mention of foie gras stuffing.

You can Google "oie rotie aux pruneaux," then ask to have the page translated. You will get it in English.

Here's one such translation.

In the French title, there is no reference to Foie Gras. Oie Rôtie aux Pruneaux translates directly to Roast Goose with Prunes. nothing else.

Somewhere I have a great recipe from André Daguin, the former owner and chef of the Hotel in Auch (Gascony) for that dish. He's a master of Gascon cooking, and the father of Ariane Daguin who owns D'Artagnan in New Jersey.

I preferred Dean Koontz when he used to write as Leigh Nicholls.
