Foie Gras made by Crave Culinaire

In Uncategorized by Crave Culinaire / January 17, 2016 / 0 Comments

Foie gras is a popular  French delicacy made of duck or goose liver. The flavor is rich, delicate and buttery and can vary between the methods used to cook them. Foie Gras can either be mi-cuit (half-cooked) or semi-conserve (in conserve). It is sold whole, or is prepared into mousse, parfait, or pâté, and may also be served as an accompaniment to another food item, such as steak.

Team Crave showcased its own versions of the Foie Gras through its “Menage a Foie”:
