As we are all aware, McDonald’s has once again decided to grace upon us a true epicurean delight, the McRib. We only get the opportunity to partake of this bounty every three years or so, but the wait is well worth it. The McRib is manufactured by combining various meat products, primarily pork, which is then shaped into a rib-like shape and is then combined with onions, pickles, and bbq sauce. Unfortunately, the McRib is scheduled to end its sojourn on December 5, so we should all be prepared for the end of this culinary feast.
Well, a fast food chain in France, Quick Burgers, has countered by providing consumers with an edible treat that should make the holiday season much more exciting for those lucky enough to make the trek across the pond – the fois gras burger. This sandwich is manufactured by combining fois gras, beef, lettuce, and relish and placing the mixture upon a bun. This interesting combination of foodstuff is available for purchase at the outrageously reasonable cost of 5 Euros, which is less than $7.
As we know, fois gras is a delicacy made by force feeding a goose with corn meal, and then, when the goose (or duck for those unconcerned with tradition) is harvested, fois gras is made from the liver component.
Luckily, air fares are amazingly cheap this year so anyone crossing the Atlantic Ocean should make sure to stop at one or more of the 350 Quck Burger locations.
