Try foie gras

#35 of 40 things to do in Paris
Foie gras is a specially cooked liver. Greater fat content is achieved by artificial overfeeding and restriction in the movement of geese or ducks. Therefore, many criticize the creators of the delicacy for cruel treatment of animals. Try or not, everyone decides for themselves.

How to do?

1. Foie gras is served in many restaurants in the city, so choose at your own discretion.
2. Order a foie gras, usually it is served with a crispy French baguette and a glass of red wine.
3. Spread some pastry on the baguette and enjoy a rich taste.

Oddviser does not recommend you to do it!

How much?

The price for various dishes with foie gras can range from €11 to €30 per dish in different restaurants.

Tips and hints

If you want to grab some delicacy home, then buy a canned jar of foie gras in any supermarket and please yourself or your friends by arrival.
