I should rather call it a terrine not a foie gras, I mean the foie
gras is a pate, very smooth, and the morteruelo I ate in Cuenca had
another consistence, you could not have it as a spread.
In the morteruelo the meat was very chunky and you could discern it
was different meats, in despite I was not able to identify them :)
