Re: english butcher and foie gras [Zurich]

Hiya all foodies out there,

does anyone know a good English (or English-speaking) butcher in Zurich?
I have nothing against Swiss ones, but I'm looking for some less-than-usual bits and bobs and because I think my German is not good enough at the moment I don't want any "lost in translation" misunderstandings over what I'd like...

Plus, does anyone know if and where I can find fresh or frozen foie gras in Zurich? Not terrine, pate or similar, I'm looking for the real thing. (NOTE: before anyone starts a groan-o-rama, I'm well aware of the issues surrounding the production of foie gras, if we want to have a discussion on animal welfare please let's do it in another thread - thanks)

Any help is much appreciated

Ta-ta
Foie-gras is not English but French. The place to go in the Zurich area is :

www.lamaisonmichel.ch in Stäfa, who in their WEBsite emphasize that they have various sorts of genuine Foie-Gras
