How to serve and eat foie gras, foie gras recipes

Some tasting tips :
  1. Our foies gras can be stored for several years at room temperature but feel free to store one or two jars in the refrigerator in case you suddenly fancy some or guests drop by unexpectedly.

  2. Chill the foie gras for about 2 hours and open about 20 minutes before it is needed.

  3. The foie gras should be sliced carefully with a sharp, straight-bladed knife. You may find it helpful to run the knife under some hot water (and dry it) between each slice.  If you are a perfectionist, you may wish to use a cheese wire.

  4. Place the slices of foie gras onto some toast or a plate.  When serving as a starter, we recommend between 50 and 70 grammes per personne.

  5. Avoid eating with sugary drinks such as sodas or spirits.  Avoid also eating foie gras with salted nibbles.
