Foie Gras Gras


The best part about processing foie gras is all the gras that shows up to the party. I Love cooking with foie gras gras. Animal fat has so many good things, it’s a shame it’s been sufficiently dissed in recent years.

I’ll use this gras in many dishes. Morning eggs, veg sauté, special sauce and so much more. I’ve even tried it in my rye bread without issue.

Foie Gras In A Pot


Today, our fatty duck livers go in a pot for future yumminess.


Tosca, the house gourmand ( gourmand is French for “tubby” … But don’t tell her that. ), inspects each step.


Lucy deveins the livers, then salt and peppers each side.
Olivia, the expert duck farmer and foie-gras-in-a-pot extraordinaire, showed us the way with this ratio.


Tosca really is a big help in the kitchen.

Boil your pots in a bigger pot for an hour and fifteen minutes. Let them cool for an hour, then stick them in the fridge for up to six months. Though, I can’t imagine it lasting that long. If you have pots of foie gras in the fridge, you’ll be tucking into it like nobodies bidness.


Don’t forget to make sure the sealy bits are sealed.


Lunch: Foie Gras and Some Cheese


The recipe said, “expensive Sauternes, port and muscat grapes.”. I did cassis, floc, dash of white cote de Gascogne and blueberries ( and strawberries savauge, with a little fruit rouge ).

This is how we do it Gascony. It all worked. Foie gras likes it sweet and a bit salty. However you choose to achieve that is your own dang bidness.


Cheese from left to right:
Pyrenees Mountain cheese, vache. From some dude named Alain. Lovely!

Grassfed Jersey cow cheese. Great for melting. Okay for nibbling.

Young, fresh Jersey cheese. Really nice. I can see its future on salads.

Cookies of Two Dimensions


One recipe, two methods. Cookie Left: chilled dough, convection oven. Cookie Right: dough done then cooked normally.

Convection cookies presented perky with some chewiness while normal cookies were flat but crispy.

It’s a preference really.

My sample size of m ( ‘m’ for men ) were split.

Comments for convection-

M1: meh. Chewy. I’m not into chewy

M2: mgrats mgrood. ( translated by wife as “that is good, Honey, how lovely of you to make cookies. Is it possible that I could clean up and then sweep the floor after?” )
