Say au revoir to foie gras


With the impending end (June 30) of foie gras sales here in California, your last opportunity to try (or to indulge in) the delicacy locally is fast approaching.

To that end, a smattering of Inland Empire restaurants are offering special dinners featuring the soon-to-be-unavailable ingredient.

In Palm Springs, Kaiser Grille Executive Chef Didier Tsirony is creating a five-course prix fixe menu, with each course containing a different preparation of foie.

The dinners will be held Wednesday (June 27), Friday (June 29) and Saturday (June 30). Wednesday’s dinner will also feature a selection of wines from Oregon’s Abacela Winery.

Seatings are limited to 24 participants per night.

Kaiser Grille is at 205 South Palm Canyon Drive. For reservations, call the the restaurant at 760-323-1003.

Ra Pour in Rancho Cucamonga is offering two ounces of seared Hudson Valley foie gras with cherries and brioche (pictured above) through the end of the month.

Ra Pour is at 7900 Kew Avenue, Suite 5410, in Victoria Gardens.

In Redlands, Time in a Bottle, 344 Orange St., is hosting “Foie-mageddon” beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday (June 30).
