TITLE: Foie Gras - Three Ways
DATE: 4/17/2009 06:11:00 AM
No back-story. Last week I was in the mood for foie gras. Since I still have my restaurant connections, I was able to purchase a 1 ½ pound lobe for a reasonable price. I invited a few friends over and we had a little feast.
First Course ... Foie Gras Mousse with Spring Vegetables and Truffles
Second Course ... Seared Foie Gras with Grilled Eel, Sweet Soy Glaze and Green Apples
Third Course ... Five Spice Duck Breast and Foie Gras with Spring Green Bao, Hoisin – Sake Sauce.
Thanks to Emily for taking the photos.

I'm very jealous! I can do this with chocolate, but it's rare that I can indulge my foie gras cravings!

Everything looks amazing! I've never made foie at home, I can buy it locally but the deveining part freaks me out.

I love the foie. I am always fascinated by my mother-in-laws stories about feeding the geese where they just gorged themselves to eat. I know so many are against it but the stories are fascinating.

Wow. Wow. Wow.
Foie gras is one of my favorites but I have never made it myself. I am totally impressed with your menu!
I posted a compilation of foie gras from various restaurants last November, you might be interested.

I've never had foie gras. How amazing for you and your guests that you could do such a lovely job of this at home!

T.W. -- you have me beat on the chocolate! Maybe we can trade?
Sara -- I don't bother deveining... It disappears when you cook it.
Heather -- well I bought the foie gras. I just cooked it. A lot of it :)
noble pig -- perhaps you can share a story with me? I'm intrigued.
Rebekka -- it was quite decadent!
LL - thanks for the link. I'll have to check that out! I'm always looking for new ideas for foie.
melissa -- I think you need to try foie gras. At least once.
