Fresh Market Foie Gras
Prized for its rich, velvety taste, fresh market Foie Gras is the quintessential French delicacy, served as a pate, terrine, or often with a fruit garnish.
Foie Gras is the liver of a Duck or Goose which has been specially fattened. Along with Caviar and Truffles, Foie Gras is one of the glories of French Cuisine. Simply prepared by sautéing, whipped into a Mousse, garnishing Kobe Beef or poached in a Terrine, Foie Gras is the summit of the culinary experience.
Literally “fat liver,” the earliest mention of Foie Gras has been found in Egyptian papyrus dating to 2500 BC. Until the 1980’s importation of fresh Foie Gras was illegal into the United States. Now there are a few small American producers, mainly in New York’s Hudson Valley. Our partners there provide the experience of fresh Foie Gras at a fraction of the imported cost.
