The most impressive foie gras recipes - 5 recipes
For years, foie gras was my foe. Living in France, I encountered foie gras at almost every dinner party, Christmas meal, or get-together with friends. I turned up my nose and always thought about the poor little ducks and geese. And one day, by accident, I had my first bite and never looked back. Foie gras is rich, velvety, buttery and smooth, with a taste so luxurious that I can only compare it to champagne. Which it goes wonderfully with, by the way. Now I wouldn't be caught dead without a piece of foie gras in my fridge. Despite its high price tag, it's a great staple to have on hand. You can use it to glam up a salad, or bake it with eggs and cream for a heavenly appetizer. I know that it can also be a little hard to find, but if you manage, foie gras is worth it.
