London, Nov 27 (ANI): A fast food chain in France has launched a limited-edition foie gras burger for just 5 euros.
The product is believed to be very expensive but a favourite Christmas delicacy in France, the Daily Mail reported.
Quick, which is a rival to McDonalds in France, will be selling the "Supreme Foie Gras Burger" for just 5 euros, or 7.50 euros with fries and a soft drink.
The burger features pieces of foie gras atop a minced beef patty, with onion relish and rocket leaves.t will be served at its 360 outlets across the country for three days only, from December 17 to 19.
Foie gras, which translates literally as "fatty liver", is produced mainly in the southwest of France by farmers who force-feed poultry with large quantities of ground corn and wheat in order to swell the birds' livers.
Once extracted the livers can fetch up to 100 euros per kilo at markets in the Aquitaine region and even more in Paris during the pre-Christmas shopping rush. (ANI)
