Bringing Foie Gras Through Customs [split from SF Bay]

Parigi | Dec 2, 2011 02:14 PM

No way !
We just brought foie gras from Paris, where we live, to SF for thanxgiving with our family. We even declared two big jars at customs. Jars even, not cans. Were waved through with a hearty "Happy thanxgiving!" (But a security agent unzipped my pants for the body search. Is that normal?)

No wonder friends and family were swooning. I should have auctioned the two jars, both from Dordogne farms, not regular store brands. :-)
