OK This might not be to everyone's taste - more of a luxury item - but would make a nice present for the gourmet type person.

Was £65.00 - reduced to £35.00

There is a code if you spend over £50 for P&P and there is lots of other stuff on the site reduced.

Any bon vivant will love this exquisitely presented gift box. The foie gras with truffle is second to none, especially when accompanied with a glass of Harrods Barsac from the renowned Sauternes appellation.

This Hamper is Non-Exportable

Thanks for the info - not sure who people voting cold - would be helpful to know why.

I understand it is a 'luxury' product but still a good price for someone who has it all.

Ha ha I defo dont have it all, but as my wife likes white wine and pate I thought the Harrods packageing would be a nice touch...and it was.

Your wife has good taste :thumbsup:

Maybe people that find the treatment of the ducks/geese in order to produce foie gras totally wrong.

I'm no activist and not a vegetarian either but I find the treatment wrong and would never eat this on principal, I know many others that feel the same.

Enjoy

In modern foie gras production, force feeding takes place from 12−18 days before slaughter. The duck or goose is typically fed a controlled amount of corn mash through a tube placed in the animal's esophagus. Due to this force feeding procedure, and the possible health consequences of an enlarged liver, animal rights and welfare organizations and activists regard foie gras production methods as cruel to animals. Foie gras producers maintain that force feeding ducks and geese is not uncomfortable for the animals nor is it hazardous to their health. Scientific evidence regarding the animal welfare aspects of foie gras production is limited[2] and inconclusive[3]. Foie gras production is illegal in a number of countries and other jurisdictions.

Voted cold for the reasons above, and that it's not a massively good deal in the first place. Sorry.

So I guess you only eat chicken from your local farm rather than "factory" grown ones, and never eat a tasty joint of lamb :giggle:

Each to their own I guess, I love the taqste of foire gras myself so I voted hot, although I wouldn't pay that much for it myself

Don't believe in stopping others from eating what they want, just my opinion and you are entitled to yours. Like I said, not an activist just a personal view.

I'm not going to belittle you for your tastes in food.
