#17 – 44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE

#17 – 44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE
A few years ago on our way back from a trip to Portugal
we made our routine stop at the duty free shop.
One of the sales people encouraged me to buy a complete Bloc de Foie Gras…
‘Madame, it is on sale, just 99 €’…
Well why not?
So buy it I did.
You would think that because the sales person had to know we were returning to Canada
that they would also be aware of any import restrictions (which we were not)…
Back in Canada, being the honest people we are, we claimed all purchases,
including our SAC of BLOC de FOIE GRAS…
(seeing the potential problem here?)
It turns out that Foie Gras in a can is fine
but in a SAC (although hermetically sealed) – is NOT!
I trust that those customs agents who confiscated my treasure
enjoyed their treat with a wonderful Sauterne.
This isn’t something we enjoy often.
It is considered a very cruel practice to force-feed those poor geese.
But their sacrifice is our pleasure, however infrequently enjoyed.
So jumping ahead to #17,
of my list of
44 French Classic Meals You Need to Try Before You Die
this was one of our last cockpit picnics
before R.E.D. was put to bed for the pre-spring months (aka winter)….
#17 R.E.D. FOIE GRAS
No recipe required.
Just a bottle opener and a good deal of ‘joie de vivre’…
…a little nibble of this…
…with a little sip of that….

 
…La vie est belle!…
