Exclusive Recipe from Michelin Chef Thomas Bühner, Germany
Foie gras is definitely an acquired taste.
Without getting into too much detail and making you hate the French delicacy before you eat it – it is fatty liver that you are smearing on your crusty baguette!
Prized as an luxury, gourmet food all around the world, Foie Gras is slowly popping up around the US. From indulgent hot dogs in Chicago that serve slaps of Foie Gras atop a bratwurst (no ketchup- Chi-style!) to small Foie Gras creators in Brooklyn and Upstate New York – pleasure can be found a little closer to home if you live in the Big Apple.
For those who can’t travel to Germany for Chef Thomas Bühner’s famous Foie Gras.
