Best Foie Gras in Bordeaux?

We will be in bordeaux in about 2 weeks for a few days. We are in the process of booking our 2 day wine tour with Ophorus but looking for some good foie gras since we cant get it legally in california anymore. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Maybe even some stores that may sell it so we can take with us on the wine tours since they do not provide lunches.

Thanks in advance for the help

You'll have no problem finding foie gras while you are here—supermarkets, charcuteries, and other food stores will have it available. There are a couple of gourmet shops in town called Dubernet which specialize in producing their own foie gras. Your guide with Ophorus should be able to tell you where the most convenient place is based on where you are staying, or even to take you to one of the shops.

In addition to Dubernet, there"s Lafitte, Comptesse du Barry, Ducs de Gascogne, Campet....., and those are just some of the specialty shops. Seriously, it's everywhere. Enjoy!

Have to agree with you Fiona but what ban? When we travelled round the Dordogne area recently, there were Foie Gras farms everywhere.

I choose not to eat it but then on the other hand I eat meat which a vegetarian might equally think is cruel.

The ban in California.

Edit: Answer to the question "what ban?"

Well, it certainly isn't banned in France, thank goodness!
