A whole goose or duck foie gras is the best quality foie gras available. It is a lobe of extra fresh foie gras, deveined and then seasoned simply (pepper & salt). Once cooked it is sterilized so that it can be safely stored for several years at room temperature.
Relatively more expensive than a block of foie gras, the price difference is reflected in the superior quality of the product.
The advantages of whole goose foie gras are numerous: composed of a single lobe of foie gras, and with its subtle taste, fine texture and natural appearance, it is traditionally prized by gourmets.
Toasted sourdough, brioche or slices of spiced bread. Delicious when paired with a slightly sweet wine such as Sauterne, Gewuerztaminer or Champagne.
