Thanks Ranvaig,
I'll add that to my list. I find the reference to the Jews of Bohemia interesting because it was my understanding that foie gras isn't kosher. Maybe that's a more modern interpretation of the kosher rules, or the fattened livers in Bohemia were the result of natural gorging behavior rather than gavage.

Rumpolt doesn't use the term foie gras, but has a 
recipe for fattened goose liver.

Gan?  5.  Roasted goose liver wrapped with a 
calves caul fat/ and nicely clean roasted/ when 
you dress it/ then give a green broth under it/ 
or a brown broth/ that is not sour.  And I have 
roasted liver from a goose that the Jews in 
Bohemia fattened/ that weighed a three pounds and 
some ounces.  One can also make a pottage from 
it/ as was  previously told.
