sweet sweet foie


foie cookies
Originally uploaded by fuzzzycatt
order seared foie at a restaurant. chances are you will more than likely get something super sweet that pairs with its. gastriques, pineapples, brittle, etc. so why hasn't anyone used foie as a full on dessert?

i mean, why not?

so far i have to applications with foie (more to come in the future): buttercream and ice cream.

pictured are oatmeal cookies with foie gras buttercream and dulce de leche. the other dessert i have with foie is butterscotch bread pudding, nutella, foie gras ice cream.

coming up with the recipes was quite simple. and in sharing fashion (and if you just happen to have foie laying around), here are the recipes:

foie gras buttercream
4 oz foie gras
14 oz butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup heavy cream
pinch salt

cook foie in pan over medium heat. be sure to contantly whisk to avoid burning.
cook foie until all fat has been rendered out and foie protein has caramelized.
strain through fine chinois, press down on chinois to get as much of the caramelized foie fat (remember, foie is expensive, no waste!)
chill over night.
next day place foie fat, butter, sugar, cream and salt in bowl of electric mixer.
with paddle attachment, mix until buttercream is smooth and light. done and enjoy!

foie gras ice cream
6 oz foie gras
2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
pinch salt
1/8 tsp xantham gum

cook foie in pot over medium heat. cook until all fat from foie has rendered out and is caramelized.
add remaining ingrediemts, whisk until hot.
once hot, place in blender and blen on high.
strain foie ice cream base with fine chinois.
chill.
run in and according to ice cream machine.
done and enjoy.

if you attempt these recipes, lemme know if you need any help.hope all goes well and enjoy foie as a dessert

This guy is the real deal - his foie creations rock my world. Now do I have the guts to try to make them myself?

Le Pigeon in Portland Oregon reportedly makes foie profiteroles with foie ice cream in them. I believe they use foie fat in the pate de choux as well.

these applications look exciting!

I had shaved foie gras over fresh lychee fruit + lychee jelly at David Chang's in NYC. Heaven. What's not to like about foie gras in dessert form?
