WOW! How Awesome...But EXPENSIVE

Took these in France over the last weekend, just thought I would shar with the food lovers who don't get to see foie gras, truffles and GREAT caviar on the daily store runs.

One of each, please


and this will make the wallet dry

Holy cow, Tattratt, where were you in France? I saw some cool stuff, but nothing like that at the Carrefour in Antibes.

Oh, crap, Tatt. Nothing like this in our Kroger. What a treasure trove!

Wow! some of our Walmarts in Houston have razor blades behind locked doors and you have to get a store clerk with a key to hand the blades to you-----these delicacies would have armed guards if they were here AND people could afford them. Thanks for a look on the other side, Tattrat, and the US dollar is not doing that great against the EURO right now, either.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

I remember the days when we would have goose liver (which in my opinion is much better than duck) for peanuts in HU.
I've read somewhere that 3/4th of the "French" foie comes from Hu .
Not surprised, I know the quality of the two.
What bothers me though, you never see that stated on the French...
