Discover all the foies gras
How to taste Foie gras ?
Fauchon offers delicious duck and goose foie gras. Elaborated in an artisanal way from the best pieces, these melting foies gras reveal the richness of their aromas in the mouth. Discover how to eat whole foie gras and how to eat semi-cooked foie gras, how to choose the wine for foie gras, and which accompaniment for foie gras to choose.
Which foie gras to choose?
You hesitate between duck foie gras and goose foie gras? If the first one reveals in mouth a classic taste and frank aromas, goose foie gras seduces many gourmets by its delicacy and the subtlety of its flavors.
How to season foie gras?
You can add a pinch of fleur de sel on the slices of foie gras to give them an iodized touch. Pepper will give a pleasantly acidic and spicy touch.
Which bread to choose for foie gras ?
Go for simplicity and quality to enjoy the foie gras. We recommend country-style bread, whose crumb offers a nice density. Rye bread is a perfect accompaniment to duck foie gras, thanks to the hint of acidity it gives off. Looking for roundness? Choose a gingerbread! Whichever bread you choose, toast it lightly. Once your foie gras bread is on the table, don't spread it on the foie gras! Simply place pieces on top, without crushing them, and enjoy this exceptional product.
What to eat with foie gras ?
On the plate, foie gras goes ideally with fresh fruit, such as figs or pears. You can also serve dried fruits, chutneys, compotes or marmalades with foie gras. However, it is not recommended to serve foie gras with a salad: the acidity of the vinaigrette does not match the roundness of the foie gras.
Which wine for foie gras?
The choice of wine for foie gras must obey a golden rule: the agreement around the smoothness. We prefer soft white wines, which go perfectly with the melting of the foie gras. A Sauternes or Monbazillac grand cru or late harvest Alsace wines are good choices. The pairing of red wine and foie gras takes on its full meaning with foie gras served warm. Foie gras can also be served with Champagne, for an exceptional agreement.
