What a great read - thanks. It reminded me of one time I visited my uncle at the family Auberge in Perigord and surprisingly we had eaten quite a bit of foie gras in the course of dinner. At 2 am my uncle had a liver crisis and we called the ambulance - which also took long to arrive. The ambulance drivers arrived and loaded my uncle on a gurney. My uncle offered them a glass of wine - then a baguette, cheese, and some foie gras. They had a small feast stretched out on my uncles strapped down belly. My uncle survived and the memory has made me laugh every day since.

My earliest attempt at cookery began with the filleting of my sister's goldfish at age 2 and cooking my pet rabbits by age 7. Life has been downhill ever since.
