Au Pied de Cochon Foie Gras Burger

Martin Picard, chef-owner of Au Pied de Cochon in Montreal, is notorious for his rich and decadent fare. His infamous PDC Burger consists of a venison patty with maple-infused pork belly, foie gras, maple syrup, port and red wine mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes, marinated onions, mature cheddar and balsamic sauce. Seriously. Try any combination of those toppings at home with the venison patty, and serve in a large white bun.
