I'm scared to try foie gras

christinea | Sep 19, 2006 02:24 PM

OK. I'll admit it. I've never had foie gras. I think it's because I hate hate hate liver. Having said that, the only way I've ever had it is pan-fried by my mom when I was a kid. My dad is Irish, so of course he loves fried liver and onions, but I cannot get past the memory of being force fed it in my childhood.

Having said all this, I love liver pate. My dad and I will fight over it at Christmas when it's put out for nibblies before dinner. you think I'll like foie gras? Is there a particular way I should try it for my first tasting experience? Please advise; I hear all these raves about it, but I'm being such a chicken!
