Why are duck and goose liver's illegal in CA?

That sounds terrible.

Put a pinch of coarse salt on the foie gras.  Then drink a sweet wine (Sauternes if you've got it) with the course.

Animal rights activists who protest forced feeding.

Traditional accompaniments for foie gras include brioche (read: doughnut), fruits, honey (read: fig, honey, and balsamic gastrique), etc. I think this would be great. But yes, a nice sauternes would go well with it.

/and while I love fried sage, I'm not sure about it here

Because you've never seen the pictures of me drinking Champagne at the end of the reflecting pool at Versailles?

Because the good hearted but simple minded animal right's crowd thinks that letting ducks wander around free range, and force feeding them over a couple years so that they get really fat is cruel.

Foie gras ducks live in a friggin paradise compared to how we treat chickens or cows in this country.

This doughnut sounds awesome.  Foie gras and fruit compotes/spreads go great together. The only thing missing is some crunch to offset the softer textures.

What, they take the bones out?  Then it wouldn't be crunchy!

Flour, egg, butter, liquid, and you've got a choux paste. Add leavening, salt, and sugar, and you've got a brioche dough. The yeast will add some flavor that the choux lacks, but the textures won't be too different, because the higher temperature of the fry oil will cause the water in the butter to flash boil, creating thousands of tiny air pockets.
I mean, consider - fried choux is a beignet, which many people consider to be a French doughnut.

... so, with all that in mind, other than your nick, how am  Isupposed to know you have ever been to France, hmmm?

I've had this before:

Foie gras macaroon.  Not bad.  Yes it was sweet.  Nowhere near the best thing I've ever eaten, but I'd have one again if the opportunity arose.

And maybe also that English is not your first language? See, above, I mentioned that beignets are fried, in contradistiction to brioches: the resulting texture of the beignet is not too far off from the brioche, because the high temperature frying makes up for the leavening.

You're trying to come off as superior and smug, but really failing in every way. Maybe you should try again from the top?

Cool, I would like to try it.  A local place used to do bone marrow donuts.  I heard they were awesome.

I haven't found a Psycho Donuts flavor I actually like, even the flavors that approximate "normal" donuts aren't particularly good, but they do seem to be staffed exclusively by cute 20-something goth girls with poor decision-making skills (as evidenced by their employment in a donut shop that requires them to wear a 40's nurse's uniform with a pushup bra, platform heels and a miniskirt.)
