I was looking for an excuse to go back to restaurant De Harmonie after the dinner served during the New Year’s borrel of the company where Robin works for. The food was so delicious, the wine was overflowing and I remembered they served foie gras. I am crazy about foie gras, the thick, supple and firm kind of goose liver, like the one that I’ve had in Antwerp years ago. Not the terrine type masquerading in most menus here in the Netherlands because there’s too much pressure from animal rights activists. But also not the kind that they served me at Rodin a few months back. My birthday was a good excuse. Just to be sure, I booked one week in advance because it’s very hard to get a table.
