Last Sunday was the opening day for the Foie Gras market in Gers (near Toulouse), in the little town of Samatan.  You wouldn't find there Foies Gras ready to eat but "Canards Gras" (fat duck) to prepare "Confits" and "Magrets" (Duck Breast) and fat livers to prepare the Foie Gras for Christmas! The average price for fresh livers was 30 euros/kg. When processed Foie Gras average price is 90 euros/kg…This is worth making your own Foie Gras !

The same way Americans start looking for the perfect Turkey for Thanksgiving in advance…the French people conduct several investigations to find out the best Foie Gras to put on the Christmas table.

Did you know that this way of preserving duck comes from Ancient Egypt?

French are now the biggest consumers of Foies Gras (71% to the world’s production). When we used to eat an average of 50 gram /inhabitant/year in the 80’s, the level is today of about 300 grams/inhabitant/year.

I can echo everything that has been said in the previous three reviews. The personalization of this entire trip was incredible and Emilie communicated quickly and completely, both in the planning of the trip and after we were in France.
