Want to eat foie gras cooked by an international chef who’s prepared meals for world leaders like George W. Bush, Vladimir Putin, Tony Blair, Jacques Chirac, and Silvio Berlusconi? All you have to do is visit a food truck on Friday. Chef Jean-Paul Peluffo will be in his Fair Game food truck at Westchester First Friday serving $10 foie gras sliders and $20 foie gras and lobster sliders.
Fair Game isn’t the only L.A. food truck that’s served foie gras since the ban on it was lifted. Chef Wes Avila at Guerrilla Tacos, who bases his menu on the best ingredients available each day, has occasionally been slinging oxtail and foie gras tacos and will have short rib and foie gras tacos in front of Culver City’s Cognoscenti Coffee tomorrow.
Foie gras and lobster makes sense for Fair Game, known for its gourmet offerings with wild game and fresh seafood. Peluffo, who at age 5 started to help make pastries in his father’s restaurant in Nice, France, has worked in restaurants across the globe from Guinea to the Ivory Coast to Mexico. In 2000, he became executive chef for the G8 Summit in Genoa, Italy, where he cooked for numerous heads of state.
