What is foie gras?

Foie gras is delicacy in French cuisine, made of the liver of a duck or goose that has been specially fattened through a force-feeding process called gavage. Foie gras can be sold whole, or prepared into mousse, parfait or pate. 

Foie gras, to some, is an expensive epicurean delight enjoyed primarily by the rich. 

What is a hot dog?

A hot dog is a moist sausage, typically made of emulsified meat by-products including, but not limited to, mechanically-separated or mechanically-recovered/reclaimed beef, pork, chicken or turkey, fat, and various seasonings and preservatives. 

Hot dogs, to some, are considered the absolute lowest of lowbrow fare. 

What is Foie Gras Hot Dog?

Foie Gras Hot Dog is a food-related blog that allows us to be properly fancy-schmancy, contentedly middle-of-the-road, and unapologetically trashy in our enjoyment of cooking and eating. Foie Gras Hot Dog lets us run our gustatory gamut – highbrow to humble – and share it all with equal enthusiasm. It's a tall order, but we hope to give due reverence to presenting our family favorites, local, regional, national and international recipes that we love, as well as our culinary explorations of locales Austin and beyond. This is just the beginning – we hope you like it. 

(No ducks, geese or hot dogs were harmed in the making of this blog.)
