Superb and mouth watering photos.

However, I should clarify that what I see being made is PATE de Fois 
Gras.   Fois Gras is merely the fattened liver
of the goose.  It is used to make the delicious pate.

I try to make it every year for New Years Eve celebration.  My daughters 
and my cats go insane when the dish is

This year I will make a Cassoulet instead

I sincerely doubt if my cardiologist would approve of either dish.
