French Christmas #3.

Well, uhm as you may have guessed from the title, this is my big number three Christmas in France. But more importantly, this Christmas will be forever known as the Christmas I decided that I liked Foie Gras. I have officially crossed over to the dark-side.


Stuff I like about French Christmas:

Fake Santas & Handsome FrenchBoys.


Dancing French Mother-in-laws.

Yeah, I crossed over to the dark side this year, too--chapon stuffed with foie gras. But it was sooooooo completely worth it. My fave resto, the guy makes his own, and it is deeeeeeelish.

I love Foie Gras as well. However, it took me a few years as I had some mediocre foie gras the first 2 times I tried it, and that put me off for quite a while.

I find that chutney also goes very well with it. My wife uses Chinese chutney as she finds the sweet-sour taste nicely offsets the richness of the foie gras.
