Happy geese and foie gras
It's my B-day soon and my sister made me a perfect gift. She sent me some La Pateria de Sousa Foie Gras.
It´s fabulous. Absolutely fabulous. It's spicy and full of flavor but somehow less fatty that normal foie gras. It comes in abundance of goose fat for those who love the fattyness though. I know it's a lame comparison, but it compares to normal foie gras like pork compares to wild boar. It's more gamey.
And why? It comes from the wild iberian geese this guy called Eduardo Sousa keeps and he doesn't force feed them.
Check out this TED talk by Dan Barber the chef on the topic.
