Foie Gras (Rant Free)

I've been working on a post about old school Catalan restaurants recently, dutifully consuming butifarra, suquet, pigs' feet and a variety of other Catalan classics without writing a word.

Luckily, the Globe has come through by publishing another article that I can share with you on-line. This one is about "ethical" foie gras. It's a costly rarity, even in Spain, but you (assuming you are European) can get it through this site, if you fancy:

If you have a hankering to read all about it, you can find the Globe article here: Spain's no-guilt delicacy: foie gras minus the force feeding.

If you simply cannot suppress the need to rant about foie (one of the most rantable foods, to be sure), feel free to let it all out in the comment section of this post.

I would prefer to use this comments page as a platform to say cruel things about Polish people.

Hi Barcelona Food Girl,
Thanks for linking to our website (
This foie is really great. I assure you. And also our ham!
As you know, Iberico hams are as good as unknown for non-Spanish people, so any help is welcome.
Right now we are testing a new strategy: to give for free a ham holder and a ham carving knife with every ham or shoulder. We hope this will make the selling easier.

I forgot to recommend you a very interesting restaurant in Barcelona: Can Lluís. Typical catalan food, home environment, and at a very reasonable price.
