Foie Gras is a masterpiece of French cuisine! Today, you will discover the easiest and tastiest ways to enjoy it.
At what temperature should you eat foie gras?
To experience the subtle aromas and delicate flavours of your foie gras, we recommend taking it out of the fridge 30 to 45 minutes before serving. If you bring it out when it is too cold, you won't be able to enjoy all of the tastes.
What are the best Foie Gras accompaniments?
Bread and crackers:
We recommend farmhouse bread, sandwich bread, brioche or canapé crackers. For more flavour don't hesitate to toast them. If you like sweet and savory combinations, you can serve foie gras with a bread containing fruit and/or nuts. Important: Do not spread the foie gras, just place it gently on the bread.
Fruit makes for an excellent accompaniment to foie gras, whether in a jam or compote. You can serve it with figs, pears, grapes or dates. Sweet jams, sauces and marmalades with slightly sour flavor is one of the best ingredients for serving foie gras. Light sweetness wonderfully complements the taste of duck or goose liver.
