    I’ve always twaned to try Foie Gras. Organ meat is awesome! Although, I must say, I can’t eat a lot of it because it IS so powerful. Does Foie Gras have a powerful taste like most organ meat? One thing I miss about NYC is their chopped chicken liver. You can’t find really good chopped chicken liver here. Shapiro’s deli (in Indianapolis) has a pretty good chopped liver sandwich, but their potato pancakes are a lot to be desired. Heck, I just miss kosher food. I would love some kasha varnishkes right about now. Great post, Craig!
