Scott Gold of The Faster Times reports on the foie gras jelly doughnut at Le Pigeon in Portland, Oregon:
It’s as though the menu had performed the Jedi mind-trick on me: "You will have the foie gras jelly donut." "I will have the foie gras jelly donut." When the server came to take our orders, I pointed at the menu and asked, simply, “Seriously?” ”Oh, yes,” he said. Oh well, I thought. I guess we’re going to do this.
As Gold says, it's a slice of foie gras atop a house-made doughnut, with another slice of foie gras on the side. "It was fried fat topped with seared fat, plain as can be." [via Sullivan via Rory]
