The first stop that we are going to make is foie gras. This delicacy is a very fatty type of spread that you can either serve as a dish or eat with bread or crackers. It comes from the liver of either a duck or a goose that has been specially fattened. While this may seem to turn you off at first, don’t be shy and take a bite. Its incredibly rich flavor will send you reeling and wanting more. Be careful not to eat too much if you are trying to watch your figure. This dish is high in flavor but also high in fat!
