Visitors to Paris looking for fine foie gras need not go farther than the purple facade of an inventive bakery in the 15th arrondissement. This bakery’s foie gras, tasty with an earthy subtlety, is meant for canine—not human—tastebuds.

Confused? Don’t be. Mon Bon Chien, the shop behind said fois gras, is the first bakery in France catering to man’s best friend.

Mon Bon Chien’s American chef and owner Harriet Sternstein serves up biscotti, peanut butter, bacon, and foie gras biscuits for the demanding Parisian clientele filling her shop with barks each day. Harriet’s biscuits run from €.60 to €1 and she even offers doggie birthday cakes for a measly €10.

Best of all, we can confirm that the biscuits are quite tasty. Mon Bon Chien’s may not be the best foie gras in town, but at €.60 it is definitely the cheapest.
