Kosher Foie Gras in US?
« on: July 03, 2014, 10:35:05 PM »
On my recent trip to Paris I was introduced to foie gras. (Stuffed goose liver-a french delicacy). I bought it in a bucher shop on Rue de Rosiers in Le Marais. I have never tasted something so good (and so expensive) before, but I'm hooked. Without getting into kashrus issues (I know it's a machlokes poskim), does if and where there is kosher foie gras available in the US?

How is kosher possible?
 Broiling the liver destroys the foie gras :o?

Check out Wikipedia. It doesn't destroy it, it's just not the real traditional french way of preparing it.

You just downgraded pomegranate's expertise in my eyes. (Was it that Heineman guy?)
 Foie Gras is legal in 49 states. California is the only state where production and sales are illegal (consumption is legal). As a matter of fact New York state is one of the world's largest foie gras producer.

Um. No. I'm not sure if you saw my previous post. foie gras is outlawed in California so it doesn't make sense for a L.A. establishment to be selling it. I checked out their website and lo and behold foie gras was nowhere to be found. I wish someone could help me here.

You thought these guys had a certified butcher degree or something?
