5280 Market and 5280 Gourmet Proudly carry Rougie Duck Foie Gras Oz Rougié's Foie Gras Grade A is selected from high-grade, 100% corn-fed duck foie gras and is flash frozen shortly after harvest. It is vacuum sealed and perfect for searing, grilling, or cooking as a terrine. Foie Gras was discovered 5,000 years ago as wild geese migrated for the winter from Scandinavia to the marshes of the Nile Delta. Amazed by the size and taste of the liver of the geese, the Egyptians learned that these animals produced "foie gras" by stocking fat in their liver, giving them the necessary fuel for their long flight. So this is how the secret of Foie Gras came to be known. Founded in 1875 and based in the medieval town of Sarlat in the beautiful Périgord region of France, Rougie is the world's #1 producer of foie gras and moulard duck specialties. Rougié is the active partner of award winning restaurants around the world, always bringing innovative culinary solutions for consistently outstanding duck delicacies.
