What else does foie gras mean?
French means “fat liver”, but it is also used for the duck’s and goose’s fattened livers. To speed up this process, the birds receive a rich mix of food and water. France and Israel are the countries with the highest production of foie gras commercially. This product can only be imported into the USA in its cooked form, which means it cannot be canned, vacuum-sealed or frozen. They are sub-par products that will not highlight foie gras’ true beauty. (in Cooking Dictionary)
A force-fed goose, sometimes duck’s fattened liver. Usually served as a pate or sliced. (in Merlin Dictionary)
