At what temperature to serve Foie Gras? Ideally, chill it for several hours in the refrigerator (between +2 and + 4 ° C) and take it out 15 minutes before tasting. Be careful never to place the foie gras in the freezer as this will damage its texture and alter its aromas.
We recommend serving the Foie Gras in slices about 1 cm thick. Foie Gras can be cut with very fine wire (a lyre) or with a toothless knife blade dipped in hot water. Then place the slices on cooled plates.
How to taste Foie Gras? Above all, avoid spreading it. Place the foie gras on a piece of bread and let melt against the palate. The pleasure comes immediately.
Which fruits to combine foie gras with? Fresh fruits (especially figs, pears and grapes) or dried fruits (apricots, dates, prunes), chutneys, compote, marmalades or jams make up a choice score for the most demanding gourmets.
Should you add salt to your foie gras? Yes, favoring fleur de sel. Its iodized taste ideally season a slice of foie gras and its crystalline aspect provides a nice counterpoint to the velvety of foie gras. And Pepper? It is a great friend of foie gras because it gives it a tangy and acid note. Sarawak pepper adds a nuanced flavor, Cubeb pepper is round, slightly bitter while Java long pepper has an almost sweet flavor.
