The Foie Gras and Smoked Duck Sausage!!!

For the uninitiated, foie gras is the liver of a goose, artificially enlarged due to foreced over-feeding. This practice has been around at least since the Romans two thousand years ago. Foie gras is a supreme delicacy of any meat lover. I should not limit it to just meat lovers. There is the fifth flavor - unctuousness - that has joined sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. I love foie gras. On this sausage sandwich it was incredible. I really could not believe how delicious every bite of the foie gras and duck sausage sandwich was. Foie gras on a bun seems sacrigligious on a snooty foodie level, but that had no effect on the taste.
