Foie gras (pronounced “fwah-grah”) is considered a delicacy around the world. French for “fat liver,” foie gras is the liver of a duck or goose that has been enlarged through a special feeding technique. Although popularized in France, foie gras actually has been around since the Ancient Egyptians learned that birds could be fattened by force-feeding. The technique is controversial, but foie gras remains one of the world’s great luxury foods.
