Plant alternatives? Yummy!

Plant-based alternatives to foie gras

Commercialised plant-based foie gras

There are many alternatives to foie gras. All of them do not seek to truly resemble foie gras but to provide the feeling of pleasure of a chic, refined tasting dish, to be taken out for special occasions.

The most famous is undoubtedly Gaïa's faux gras. But many plant-based pâtés can fulfil this role, such as Tartex or creamy iBi.

To sum up, we have :

Those who want to look like foie gras

The Faux Gras, from Gaia

It is the oldest and most famous fake fat. It is made by Tartex, but the product was developed with the help of the Belgian animalist association Gaïa.

We make you taste this fake fat on our stands. According to many people who have tasted it, it is very close to the taste of foie gras.
