Sounds rather disgusting to me (both the idea of eating a fatty liver and the force feeding of the poor geese), but people who eat it swear it’s delicious. Anyway, I watched this TED video of a story of foie gras being made a different way:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I especially like how he takes what he learns about this “natural” foie gras and extends it to industrial agriculture as a whole.
