I ate at Thomas Keller's Bouchon yesterday. It was delicious. I finally had the opportunity to try professionally prepared foie gras. It was actually pretty tasty.

The last time my parents had foie gras, they said it just tasted like fatty duck liver. In other words, it was like they were served a small portion of fat. At Bouchon, they prepared it with a delicious huckleberry sauce atop a crouton, leaving it rather delicious. Although, to be honest, I don't know if it was worth being the most expensive thing we ordered. It was more for the experience.

Because I'm a vegetarian.
I don't eat fish, chicken, eggs or milk.

Milk partially just cause I think it's gross.

oh, i was a vegetarian until it made me very sick. but now i could never go back because i love cooking meat. i was just confused because there is a lot of vegetarian sushi so i figured you might mean something else.

and jeff, so you yourself hadn't ever had it? how long ago did your parents try it? it's changed a lot in the last decade or so. i's much more exciting and daring.

My dad ordered it at a restaurant in Santa Barbara two or three years ago. He's had an aversion to liver ever since dental school where they ate it once a week. I suppose that's why we don't eat too much of it. Also because it's another animal's poison filter, but that's another story.

i love it and i love seeing how different chefs work with it. in my opinion, it's one of the measures of a chef's creativity, just as a roasted chicken is a measure of their skill.

Honestly, Lily. You would rather see Dave than Thomas Keller? He must be some boyfriend.

The above was supposed to be in reference to your culinary opinion expertise, as shown by your above post.

Whoa, wait a second. Don't you work in an ice cream shop? That must be strange.
