Foie gras is a specialty food product made of the liver of a duck or goose. Foie gras (pronounced "fwah-grah") is considered a delicacy around the world. French for "fat liver," foie gras is the liver of a duck or goose that has been enlarged through a special feeding technique . It is extremely fatty, with a very rich, buttery flavor and a smooth texture.
Whether you purchase goose or duck whole foie gras, you have the option to prepare it in a few different ways: searing it whole, processing into a pate, layering in a terrine or pureeing into a mousse. The rich, buttery flavor marries well with fruit like apples, grapes, and figs, as well as balsamic vinegar
we advocate a quick pan sear for fresh slices of foie gras, because it is a no-fuss method that anyone can master.
