1 Foie gras on toasted brioche with satsuma

 

BEST FOR: Christmas Parties

 

Elevate your Christmas party canapes to something truly special - with minimum effort. With a jolt of citrus to cut through the richness, we recommend serving your foie gras on dainty slices of brioche, topped with a disc of seasonal satsuma or orange.

Simply toast your brioche slices, top with 1cm-thick slices of lightly-seared foie gras then crown with a disc of peeled, horizontally-sliced satsuma. If you have a culinary blow-torch, then try caramelising the satsuma with a sprinkle of brown sugar first.

2 Foie gras terrine

 

BEST FOR: Christmas Eve

 

Easily done in advance so you can spend your Christmas Eve relaxing, why not try making a foie gras terrine for the family? Prepare it with Sauternes or your favourite sweet wine a week or so before Christmas and keep in the fridge until you want to serve it.

Foie gras terrine is delicious spread on sliced toasted bread and your favourite zingy fruit jelly on top for a tart hit. You can always slice it and present on a platter at any of your Christmas gatherings.

3 Foie gras-stuffed turkey

 

BEST FOR: Christmas Day

 

Have everyone fighting over that last piece of stuffing by infusing it with foie gras. When preparing your traditional stuffing mix with onions or shallots, mushrooms, sausage or chicken meat, simply add 200g-300g of foie gras when you add the mixture into your blender. The result is decadently creamy stuffing that will dazzle your guests.

4 Goose foie gras on sourdough with fig chutney

 

BEST FOR: Boxing Day

When the whole family is still feeling the excesses of the Christmas Day’s over-indulgence, reach for a luxurious, yet effortless bite. A simple foie gras Christmas recipe, all you need to do is smear goose foie gras straight from the jar onto a slice of warm toasted sourdough, and top with a dollop of fig chutney. Whether a low-fuss lunchtime treat or evening indulgence, this foie gras dish is a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
