oh if only was refined enough to try it...hehe
You've made me so hungry...mmm...
Oh, I love the second line. "Foie Gras not for the bourgeois" just makes me laugh! Now I know what to say next time I'm offered some. I really don't like it.Kay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie’s Guide to Adventurous Travel
Thank you for your post. I love learning things like this.
haha - your haiku is just ducky! Love it!
Totally clever ... and I learned something too!
"Foie Gras not for the bourgeois"That is really clever, Woonie!
Dear Helen: Excellent Haiku by the way of duck! Is that what liverwurst made from...duck's liver disquised as pate? Oh wow! I did not know this.
Whatever we call it, it seems unkind to force-feed ducks, or geese just for paté. Instructive haiku.
I agree with the good doctor ... at least fois gras didn't begin with force feeding. The ducks did it all on their own, fuel for the long flight to warm climes.
Very clever write. I do agree that the way we obtain foie gras these days is most inhumane. I won't eat it.
Love your piece and pate ! ( I wantto know how you created you accentson that word!)
I think you have great taste!
"Paste of fatty liver" sounds so awful compared to the wonderful sounds of "pâté de foie gras"... Doesn't it? Good take on the image.
Not the healthiest option, but still makes the mouth water.
YUmmm that is me singing yum.
Sorry I will go with groups such as PETA, Viva!, and the Humane Society of the United States!! It may be delicious to taste but I don't think I'll eat it and thank goodness I am a vegetarian, besides being a dietitian I will help promote good health through healthy eating!! But your Haiku on this is clever!!
Never tried fois-gras, but like the haiku
Fois-gras is great - until you think how it was made...Clever haiku.
Try as I might, I can never be very fond of liver... fattened or otherwise!Nice haiku :)Cheers,Arnab Majumdar on SribbleFest.com
It is an unpleasant thought of force-fed ducks for our pâté pleasure, but I'm still off out for a baguette!
I love this - reminds me of the days when I had the time to make my own pate (please note here - sans accents!)- always a faff but the end result, always a delight to and favourite of dinner guests!
PS: this brings to mind the wonderful Barbra Streisand as Fanny Brice in 'Funny Girl' singing when given de- luxe pate by the equally wonderful Omar Sharif, that it was just 'chopped liver on toast'
